Paper Abstract

Benzophenone was used as the photoreactive moiety in the synthesis of several water soluble, fluorescent photoaffinity labels. The following compounds were synthesized: 5-(2-(p- benzoylbenzamido)ethylamino-1-napthalenesulfonate (BzEDANS); 5-(2-(p- benzoylbenzamido)hexylamino-1-napthalenesulfonate (BzHDANS); and 4-benzoyl-1- benzamidofluorescein (BzAF). BzEDANS and BzHDANS were found to be unsuitable for use as photochemical probes. They were incapable of photoinduced covalent binding to methylene carbon due to intramolecular triplet-triplet energy transfer. BzAF was synthesized because its fluorescent moiety, fluorescein, is an inefficient acceptor for intramolecular quenching of the benzophenone triplet state diradical intermediate. BzAF was found to be a suitable and efficient photolabel and is presently a prototype for a new class of fluorescent photolabel.
