Photoaffinity labelling has been used as a technique to study membrane structure. This technique necessitates design and synthesis of suitable carbene and nitrene precursors referred to as photoaffinity (
We have prepared diazofluorene and quantitatively studied the products formed on photolysis in polar and nonpolar organic solvents. Products from both singlet and triplet carbenes were observed. Various other analogues like iodo, carboxy and alkyl substituted diazofluorenes have been prepared to get greater extinction coefficients and absorptions above 300 nm. These extrinsic
Fatty acids containing the diazofluorene unit have also been synthesized and linked to phospholipids. Studies with these intrinsic photolabelled phospholipids as well as erythrocytes are in progress.
