SYNTHESIS, GELATION, AND STEADY STATE FLUORESCENCE PROPERTIES OF ALKYLOXYCOUMARIN DERIVATIVES **
Molecular gels play an essential role in biomedical applications, such as drug-delivery systems and sensors. Fluorescent molecular gels are reported to have potential applications in sensing since its light-emitting devices. Coumarin is an aromatic organic compound that exhibits fluorescence properties and has been reported to find applications as sensors and in medical imaging. In the present study, a series of four alkylated coumarin derivatives were prepared from 7-hydroxycoumarin and 4-hydroxycoumarin by varying the alkyl chain lengths (n= C10H21, C12H25). The synthesized compounds were characterized using spectroscopic and thermal analysis. The Gelating ability of the synthesized compounds in various polarity liquids as well as the steady-state fluorescence and thermal properties will be presented.
