Hello all,

I'm studying for a Ph. D. degree in Physical Chemistry and my research subject is excited-state proton transfe in photoacids. For my research, I need to dissolve 2-naphthol-6,8-disulfonate in solvents like acetone or less polar than acetone. Can I do it? If yes, HOW?

Thank you all for help,

Haim Rozler

Try and error. The experiment will shoe it.
It is solouble or it is partly solouble or it will be not dissolved. Maybe have to change the sulfonate to a ester, if there is no problem with the condition of the original molecule.

Can you use a partially aqueous system? Like THF/water?
