Research output: Patent


Fluorescent dye compounds of formula (I) are disclosed. These compounds are useful as they interact with organic compounds in a manner such that excitation with certain wavelengths of light results in fluorescent emission. Detection and/or monitoring of the fluorescence provides a means for the detection or quantification of organic compounds when bound to these fluorescent dye compounds. Formula (I), wherein: each of R, R ’ and R"
is a hydrogen atom, halogen atom or a straight or branched chain Ci.2o alkyl, alkenyl or alkynyl group optionally substituted with one or more halogen, hydroxy and/or oxy group; rings A, B and C optionally include one or more double bonds; rings B and C are optionally substituted with one or more halogen atom
