Coupling Reactions of Aryldiazonium Salts Aryldiazonium ions are weak electrophiles that react with electron-rich aromatics such as phenols and N,N-disubstituted aryl amines to give azo compounds . G : G = R 2 N-, HO- + N N: + N N + electrophile G H N N + electrophilic aromatic substitution stabilization by substituent (-H + ) G N N an azo compound

N=N SO 3 - Na + OH orange II synthesized from OH 2-naphthol SO 3 - Na + H 2 N p-aminobenzenesulfonic acid Azo compounds are typically intensely colored because of their extended ! -electron systems that absorb radiation in the visible region. They are used commercially as dyes. Substituent groups such as -SO 3 - Na + are introduced to make them water soluble to promote their binding to polar fibers (wool, cotton, nylon). Azo Dyes

Azo Dyes as pH Indicators Azo dyes are used as pH indicators because their ! -electron systems change dramatically between the free base and conjugate acid forms, leading to different colors for the two forms. Butter yellow
