Microwave-assisted functionalization of bromo-fluorescein and bromorhodamine derivatives Academic Article uri icon


  • The overall goal of this project was to develop methodologies that would allow organometallic couplings of fluorescein and rhodamine derivatives. Consequently, borylation, Suzuki, and Sonogashira reactions of fragments derived from compounds 1 and 2 were investigated. Conventional and microwave heating were compared throughout the study. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
