Nine new 3-hydroxyflavone derivatives as fluorescent molecular sensors having two well-separated emission bands were synthesized. These sensors can occupy well-determined locations and orientations in macromolecular ensembles, such as micelles due to their finely-tuned designs. These polarity-sensitive dyes can incorporate into the anhydrous hydrophobic core of aqueous micelles. (C) 2007 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
