Abstract. Preparation, characterization, photostability and polarity studies of novel Schiff base dyes using spectroscopic methods were achieved. The Schiff base dyes were prepared by the reaction of salicylaldehyde/2-Hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde with aminophenazone under microwave irradiation. The spectroscopic (FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C-NMR, Mass) studies and elemental analyses were in good agreement with chemical structure of synthesized compounds. In addition, UV-Vis and fluorescence spectroscopic experiments showed that these dyes are good absorbent and fluorescent. Based on the photostability study of these dyes, minimal to no loss in fluorescence intensities of 4-[(2-Hydroxy-benzylidene)-amino] 1, 5-dimethyl-2-phenyl-1,2-dihydro-pyrazol-3-one (D1) (6.14%) and 4-[(2-Hydroxy-naphthalen-1-ylmethylene)-amino]-1,5-dimethyl-2-phenyl-1,2-dihydro-pyrazol-3-one (D2) (2.95%) was observed with an increase in the exposure time using time-based fluorescence steady-state experiments. These studies also inferred that these Schiff base dyes have a high photostability against photobleaching. In addition, Dye 2 is found to be more sensitive than Dye 1 to the polarity of the microenvironment provided by different solvents based on the results of fluorescence polarity studies.
