Abstract

A novel synthetic method was developed to prepare new fluorescent 2-(1,3-benzoxazol/benzothiazol-2-yl)-3H-benzo [ƒ]chromen-3-one derivatives 3a-p by the Knoevenagel condensation between 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde and benzothiazole-2-yl-aceatates or N-methyl benzoxazole-2-yl-acetates using choline chloride/urea ionic liquid as a green catalyst. The results of fluorescence studies revealed that all the compounds show moderate to low emission intensities and are expressed in the form of quantum yields.
