Fluorescent dyes, 6-(4-dimethylaminophenyl)-4-methylthio- and 6-[2-(4-N,N- disubstituted aminophenyl)vinyl]-4-methylthio-2-oxo-2H-pyran-3-carbonitriles (3a-d) were synthesized by the reaction of 4-dimethylaminoacetophenone (1a) and 4-aminobenzalacetone derivatives (1b-d) with ketene dithioacetal (2) in the presence of sodium hydroxide in dimethyl- sulfoxide at room temperature. These 2-pyrone derivatives (3a-d) showed orange and red fluoresecence (Fmax: 607, 699, 705, 645 nm) in dichloromethane solution. The preparation and fluorescence 4-amino-2H-pyrone derivatives is also described.
