Abstract

The fluorescent pH indicator parameters for compounds (1a) and (1b) are predictable within experimental error from the appropriate data for the constituent units 2- or 4-methyl benzoic acid and the fluorophore (1c), except for the maximum fluorescence quantum yield which is predictable to within an order of magnitude.
