Product name3-Ethynyl perylene, Green emitting fluorescent dye
DescriptionVery bright, photostable green emitting fluorescent dye.
Perylene is a PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon) containing five fused rings. Planarity of this molecule gives rise to low solubility of its derivatives, as well as its outstanding fluorescence. Perylene possesses intense green fluorescence, great photostability, and quantum yield approaching unity. This molecule contains an alkyne group ready for Click Chemistry, as well as for other coupling reactions such as Sonogashira cross-coupling.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. It is important to note that this product is reported to be light sensitive. Store In the Dark. Store under desiccating conditions.
Solubility overviewSlightly soluble in ethanol
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
