3-Coumarinyl Carboxylates were synthesized from 3-hydroxycoumarin by O-acylation with acid chlorides or acid anhydrides in the presence of an appropriated base. The fluorescence spectra of these compounds were recorded in acetonitrile. Except the compounds 2g With R=(CH3)2N) as substituent which exhibits an unstructured broad spectrum at a long wavelength (λem=488nm; ∆λ=177nm), all compounds emit in the same chromatic range (300nm < λem < 400nm). This compounds exhibited high fluorescent intensities that vary according to the electronic nature of the different substitutes.
