Abstract

A new red hair-inspired 1,4-benzothiazine-based scaffold is disclosed herein, built upon a modular D-π-A architecture via condensation of the easily accessible 3-phenyl-2H-1,4-benzothiazine with indole-3-carboxaldehyde. The compound was obtained in around 50% yields and was characterized by complete spectroscopic analysis. The new benzothiazine-based cyanine displayed a characteristic reversible acidichromic behavior with a marked bathochromic shift upon acidification. The chromophore resisted at least fifteen hydrochloric acid/sodium hydroxide cycles without appreciable alterations. The expedient and scalable synthetic procedure together with the pH sensitive chromophoric properties would make the new compound an attractive prototype for novel modular chromophore for pH-sensing and other applications
