How to use Acridine in a sentence
Similarly a CH group may be replaced by a nitrogen atom with the production of compounds of similar stability; thus benzene gives pyridine, naphthalene gives quinoline and isoquinoline; anthracene gives acridine and a and 3 anthrapyridines.
The quinonoid structure of many coloured compounds has been proved experimentally, as, for example, by Hewitt for the benzene-azo-phenols, and Hantzsch for triaminotriphenyl methane and acridine derivatives; but, at the same time, many substances cannot be so explained.
It may be separated by shaking out with dilute sulphuric acid, and then precipitating the sulphuric acid solution with potassium bichromate, the resulting acridine bichromate being decomposed by ammonia.
Many synthetic processes are known for the production of acridine and its derivatives.
Acridine and its homologues are very stable compounds of feebly basic character.Advertisement
Numerous derivatives of acridine are known and may be prepared by methods analogous to those used for the formation of the parent base.
The next step was to use a fluorochrome (fluorescent stain) which is a powerful nuclear stain, namely, Acridine Orange.
