|Abstract(s):||The demand for dyes with solvatochromic properties has increased in the last few years, mainly due to their wide range of applications in the analytical and industrial ﬁelds, such as in the textile industry. The phenomenon of solvatochromism is associated with the diﬀerential solvation of the ground and excited states of the solvatochromic compounds, leading to an important tool for the study of the nature of solute–solvent interactions. In this paper we report the synthesis of new bis(indolyl)methane derivatives bearing arylthiophene spacers (2a–d) functionalized with electron-donating and electron- withdrawing groups, and the photophysical studies in diﬀerent solvents, such as ethanol, acetonitrile, dichloromethane, trichloromethane, dimethylsulfoxide, diethylether and 1,4-dioxane. Aiming to explore their solvatochromic behavior in the ground and excited states, all solvents employed have diﬀerent hydrogen-bond donor abilities. The largest colour modiﬁcations were visualized for compound 2b, the solution colours of which are orange in DMSO, blue in trichloromethane, green in dichloromethane and purple in 1,4-dioxane. A negative solvatochromism was observed in 2b and positive one in 2a, 2c and 2d.|
