[5] Synthesis and Characterization of a New Fluorescent Probe for Reactive Oxygen Species

Org. Biomol. Chem. 2007, 5, 1454. 

We report the development of a new fluorescence sensor for reactive oxygen species (ROS) based on a benzofurazan structure. The sensor, NBFhd, is initially non-fluorescent and reacts with peroxyl radicals by hydrogen transfer in an aqueous medium under neutral conditions to release the fluorescent N-methyl-4-amino-7-nitrobenzofurazan (NBF) and 1,4-benzoquinone. NBFhd shows excellent contrast and no interference in the region of cell autofluorescence and is a new tool to detect ROS in homogeneous and biological systems.
