Coumarin 120 Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesCoumarin 120 is Light yellow beige powder
  • UsesCoumarin 120 is widely used fluorophore, well-known for preparing fluorogenic substrates for cystine aminopeptidase and other hydrolases. Used as reference compound in enzyme assays.
  • Usessuitable for determining polygalacturonase activity
  • Usesλ max 354 nm in EthanolSuitable as laser dye and used as a fluorescent labeling reagent for trace determination of enzymes.
  • General Description
    7-Amino-4-methylcoumarin (coumarin120) is an aminocoumarin laser dye that can emit laser in the range of 370-760 nm. It has three intermolecular hydrogen bonded structures with C-H···O and N-H····O.
  • Purification MethodsDissolve it in 5% HCl, filter and basify with 2M ammonia. The precipitate is dried in a vacuum and recrystallised from dilute EtOH. It yields a blue solution and is light sensitive. [Sigler Synthesis 614 1980, Kanaoka et al. Chem Pharm Bull Jpn 30 1485 1982, Beilstein 18/11 V 445.]
