Solvent-Triggered Long-Range Proton Transport in 7-Hydroxyquinoline Using a Sulfonamide Transporter Group

The ability of long-range proton transport by substitution of 7-hydroxyquinoline at the eighth position with sulfonamide and sulfonylhydrazone rotor units to act as a crane-arm has been studied. Different proton transport pathways triggered by different stimuli have been established depending on the structure of the crane-arms. Solvent-driven proton switching from OH to the quinoline nitrogen […]

7-OH quinoline Schiff bases: are they the long awaited tautomeric bistable switches?

Two novel, 7-hydroxyquinoline based, Schiff bases have been synthesized and their spectral properties have been investigated by combined use of optical and NMR spectroscopy and theoretical DFT calculations. The results indicate that 8-((phenylimino)methyl)quinolin-7-ol exists as a mixture of enol and two keto tautomers in solution, while 8-(((pentarfluorophenyl)imino)methyl)quinolin-7-ol is presented as a single enol form. Upon […]
