Abstract: Quinolin-2-ones of type A having electron donating groups in pos. 6 and 7 are stable fluorescent dyes absorbing close to the visible [1,2]. This makes such carbostyrils interesting to be used in devices utilizing the new blue laser diodes. In this contribution several methods are described to introduce a reactive linker group which allows binding to amino acids or proteins or immobilization at polymers. A versatile variation leads to almost selective functionalization of the nitrogen in position 1 without loss of the luminescence properties. After conversion to stable reactive intermediates mild acylation of amino-acids and proteins gives fluorescent products showing good quantum yield.
