A model compound for pyridine–acetylene–phenol conjugates was prepared, and its hydrogen-bonding and spectroscopic properties were studied. Pyridine and phenol moieties worked as a hydrogen-bonding acceptor and an donor, respectively, so that the conjugate model efficiently bound to MeOH. The absorption and fluorescence spectra showed remarkable additive effects against acid and base, illustrating the application of the conjugates to recognition-sensitive fluorophores.
