Optimization of the Synthesis of the Fluorescent Dye “Nile Red”

Optimization of the Synthesis of the Fluorescent Dye “Nile Red”

Products of organic chemistry are widely used, they can protect oceans from microplastics, treat serious diseases and create a greener daily life. “Nile Red” is an organic dye that is used for detection of microplastics, staining of cells and proteins in medical research etc. The aim of my work is to develop a safe method to produce Nile Red by replacing toxic solvent previously used in synthesis. With this research, I want to contribute to a safer environment, cleaner and healthier world.
