Parallel Combinatorial Synthesis of Azo Dyes


The featured molecules for this month are from "Parallel Combinatorial Synthesis of Azo Dyes: A Combinatorial Experiment Suitable for Undergraduate Laboratories" by Benjamin W. Gung and Richard T. Taylor. The principle of combinatorial chemistry is illustrated by generating a relatively large number of colorful dyes using only one common reaction, the diazo coupling, and two common reactants with small variations. Fully manipulable (Chime) versions of these molecules appear below.
