Abstract

Functional hydroxyazobenzene dyes for optically monitoring pH in the range from 610 10 were synthesised The pK(a) values of the dyes have been tailored by appropriate choice of substituents in position para to the hydroxy group, resulting in lower pK(a) values for electron acceptor substituents and higher pK(a) for electron donors Furthermore, substituent effects on absorbance spectra have been evaluated, with expected shifts to longer wavelength in the case of electron donors. For immobilisation, the indicator dyes were covalently linked to cellulose films via vinylsulfonyl chemistry Mechanical stabilization Utile cellulose films was achieved by lamination onto polyethylene terephthalate foils. In order to obtain patterned sensor layers with geometrical defined sensing areas a laser-structured adhesive tape was used as protective mask in the dyeing step (C) 2010 Elsevier B V All lights reserved
