In this project it is proposed the convertion of betalamic acid in pyrrolic bethalains and determination of the effects of structural changes in photophysical properties of these betalains. It will be used four pyrrols containing substituents in positions 1(N) and 2 for pyrrolic bethalain semisynthesis, allowing caracterization of coupling throw nitrogen or alpha-carbon. All the obtained compounds will be characterized in terms of their structures, photophysical properties (maximum absorbance and fluorescence wavelenght, Stokes shift, singlet energy, fluorescence quantum yield and fluorescence half-life) and thermic stability chacterized in different polar solvents.
