wherein R R R and R each represent hydrogen or a substituent such as halogen, hydroxyl, an alkyl or alkoxy of 14 carbons; and R represents hydrogen or an alkyl of 1-4 carbons. Within this group of compounds, a preferred subclass is that in which R is hydroxyl and the other Rs" are as defined above. Accordingly, they are used herein for the purposes of primary illustration.

Fluorescence, or the emission by certain materials (phosphors) of light energy (luminescence) of one wavelength when irradiated by exciting light of a different wavelength, usually lower, has been well-known for many years. Also well-known is the phenomenon of phosphorescence exhibited by some materials, i.e., persistence of the luminescence after removal of the source of exciting radiation. In the past, various practical applications of fluorescent phenomena have been proposed with varying degrees of success.

Usually these involved irradiation with ultraviolet light, resulting in illumination by emission of visible light at longer wavelengths. For such purposes, inorganic phosphors have had quite wide application. In general, however, organic materials have been found applicable only in very few instances, being limited, in part, by a lower degree of stability than inorganic materials under the types of irradiation encountered. Moreover, most of the applicable compounds have been dyes such as rhodamine, which are self-colored. This is definitely undesirable for many potential applications.

Fluorescence is also involved in the field of brighteners or optical bleaches. Here, organic materials have been applied with great success on a broad commercial scale. However, organic materials found useful for such purposes have not been found generally useful for fluorescent illuminating purposes. In large part this is due to minimal fluorescence of the material in the solid state and to relative instability and decided degradation under continued exposure to exciting radiation in the ultraviolet range.

Reissued Apr. 29, 1969 In the illuminating field, as noted above, some limited use of organic materials as fluorescers has been proposed. One such is in application as screens, not as a major source of illumination but for purposes of shading or modifying the color or tone of light from some other source. Such a screen may be used to improve the spectra of light sources deficient in one or more spectral color elements to a more desirable spectrum or shade of light.

One example of such application is found in U.S. Patent No. 1,150,118. Therein, a fluorescent screen or surface using an organic material such as a rhodamine dye is used to impart an improved color value to illumination emitted from a mercury vapor lamp, i.e., to produce a whiter light closer to daylight than is the greenish-blue tone of light normally produced by a mercury vapor lamp. Thus, such a light transforming screen or reflector is useful for converting some of the rays of the light source to light of a more desirable wavelength. Such sources could be mercury vapor lamps or tungsten or carbon filament lamps. Other illustrations are found for example in U.S. Patents Nos. 2,177,701 and 2,149,992. Fluorescence phenomena have also been applied to coating compositions, for example, in uses involving pigment compositions.

However, one of the principal deterents to wider use of organic materials in fluorescent screens or films still remains the relative instability encountered on prolonged exposure to exciting ultraviolet light and/or the relatively weak fluorescence in the solid state. Thus, for example, many of the compounds useful as brighteners or optical bleaches do show the desired shades of fluorescence but lack sufficient stability against deterioration when exposed to ultraviolet exciting light for extended periods. More over, many fluoresce only weakly or imperceptibly in the solid state.

Consequently, in illumination, and in related arts, there remains a definite need for suitable fluorescent low-cost, organic materials. Such materials should exhibit little or no visible color in white light. Under ultraviolet irradiation in the solid state they should fluoresce strongly in desirable shades. They should be adequately stable to the effect of such irradiation as well as to the effect of heat for extended periods.

Such materials would be extremely useful for a variety of applications, especially in the illumination field or in other fields where fluorescence is desirable. Thus, in the illumination field, screens or panels giving various shades of light under excitation would be useful, not only for general illumination but to produce novel or theatrical effects, signs, coating compositions, fluorescent finishes, fluorescent lamps and the like.

It is, therefore, the principal object of the present invention to provide such organic materials. In the present invention this object has been accomplished to a surprisingly successful degree by the discovery and use of the compounds of Formulae I which were discussed above. In accordance with the present invention, it has been found that colorless or nearly colorless compounds so defined show strong fluorescence in the solid state, give off desirable shades of visible light when irradiated with ultraviolet light; have a high degree of stability to the effect of heat; and do not excessively deteriorate or lose fluorescence during exposure to ultraviolet light, even over prolonged periods.

Accordingly, these compounds are highly useful in applications requiring emission of visible light on exposure to ultraviolet light. They may be formulated successfully in solid form in screens, films, coatings, and the like to obtain the fluorescent effects desired. Discovery of the fluorescent properties and stability of these compounds in the solid state and their applicability for fluorescent purposes was completely unpredictable and unexpected.

YQ l NH Although yields by this method generally are not as high as might be desired, this method often is convenient. It affords a procedure for obtaining various substituted derivatives from more readily available or more easily prepared starting materials. Thus, by choosing appropriately substituted anilides, the desired substituted quinazolones may be prepared. Illustrative aroyl anilides which may be used in this method include:

p-Anisanilide 4'-butyl-p-tanisanilide 4'-chloro-p-anisanilide 4'-bromo-p-anisanilide 4'-bromo-p-anisanilide Benzanilide 4'-methylbenzanilide 4'-chlorobenzanilide 2-chlorobenzanilide p-Benzanisidide p-Anis-o-anisidide p-Anis-p-anisidide 4,4-dichlorobenzanilide 2,4-dichlorobenzanilide 2-methyl-4'-chlorobenzanilide 2-methyl-4'-butylbenzanilide Method (B).Reaction of an anthranilamide with an aromatic aldehyde by heating in the presence of a solvent, such as ethanol, to give an anil type which then is ring closed to a dihydroquinazolone in the presence of caustic; the dihydroquinazolone then being oxidized to the corresponding quinazolone. This may be illustrated by the following reaction scheme:

This procedue also may be used to obtain substituted derivatives by using appropriately substituted starting materials. Illustrative anthranilamides, for example, include those having chloroor bromo-substituents in the 4- or the 5-position. Illustrative aldehydes include, for example:

Benzaldehyde 2,4-dimethoxybenzaldehyde o-Anisaldehyde 2-chlorobenzaldehyde p-Anisaldehyde 4-chlorobenzaldehyde m-Anisaldehyde 4-bromobenzaldehyde Method (C).--By cyclization of N-aroyl anthranilamides under alkaline conditions as illustrated in the following reaction scheme.


CONIIz Qt Here again substituted derivatives may be prepared by having appropriate substituents in the starting materials.

Various known methods are available for evaluation of these compounds as organic fluorescent materials; for example determination of the color and strength of fiuorescence; the stability on irradiation; and the like. Stability, however, may vary appreciably, depending on the test conditions. For example, in solution some compounds may be relatively unstable yet in the solid state show extremely high stability. Thus, for example, when certain compounds are incorporated in cellulose acetate and exposed to UV light in a Fade-Ometer" they may show stability of seemingly low order. However, the same compound in the solid state, as in the form of a thin film deposited from solution, in many instances shows a very high degree of stability.

Diflerent compounds of the present invention when exposed to UV light show fluorescence in various colors. As stated above, they may show varying degrees of stability. Also as noted above, preferred compounds of the invention, especially as to stability and as to intensity and shade of emitted visible light when exposed to UV are those of Formula I in which R is an ortho-hydroxy substituent. Among these, 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-4(3)-quinazolone is especially desirable because of its shade of fluorescent light and high stability.

Compounds of the invention may be used in a very large variety of applications, based on their fluorescence and stability properties. Thus, for example, they may be used in lighting panels; in various types of plastic compositions; in inks, paints and the like; or in any application applied to a surface or in a film for emission of visible light upon exposure to UV light. A specific application of interest is the use of a fluorescent compound of the invention in printing inks, paints, enamels and other surface coating compositions to produce a composition which has one appearance by daylight and a completely different appearance or color under UV or black light. Such eflects are useful for various decorative uses and for purposes of identification or security.

As fiuorescers, compounds, of the invention absorb UV light and by virtue of this property also have some application as protective agents in plastic compositions, that is as UV absorbers. In such cases, it is the UV-absorbing property which is important rather than conversion of incident UV light to emitted visible light.

This invention will be further illustrated in conjunction with the following examples. Therein, unless otherwise noted, all parts and percentages are by weight and temperatures are in degrees centigrade. Preparation of the 4(3)-quinazolones is illustrated by Examples 1-37 inclusive. Preparation of the preferred 2-(2-hydroxylphenyl)-4(3)quinazolones which are believed to be new compounds is illustrated in Examples 2237. Properties and uses of these compounds are shown in the remaining examples,

The 2 (2 hydroxyaryl) 4(3) quinazolones had intensities of fluorescence vastly superior to the derivatives not possessing 2-hydroxyaryl structures.

EXAMPLE 38 Illustrative 4(3 )-quinazolones were examined in sodium chloride wafers to determine the intensity of luminescence and light stability as shown by the percent luminescence remaining after prolonged exposure to UV light. Wafers containing 0.2% luminescer are prepared by grinding the luminescer with the NaCl in a porcelain mortar until a fine powder having uniform luminescence under a black light is obtained. One or two grams of this powdered mixture is sintered in a 1.750-inch diameter die, at a pressure of 150,000 lb./in. to form a transparent to translucent wafer. The wafer is then mounted on a 2 x 2 inch optical glass slide with black, pressure-sensitive plastic tape. Observations are made on the color 01 luminescence under black light. The intensity of fluorescence of each wafer is determined using a Galvanek-Morrison fluorimeter. Fluorescence is compared to a blue fiuorescing plastic sheet which is used as a standard for comparative purposes and is arbitrarily assigned the fluorescent strength of 1.0. In order to allow the intensity of luminescence to stabilize, the first hours of exposure are considered as a break-in period. The wafers are aged in a fluorescent sun lamp black light exposure unit (FSBL) and the change of fluorescent intensity with time of exposure is determined. In the following Table IV, illustrative results obtained with one gram wafers containing various quinazolones after 3380 hours exposure are given. Results obtained with 4(3)-quinazolones that do not have the 2-hydroxy substituent are first shown; followed by those for the new 2-hydroxy compounds of the present invention.

As can be seen from Tables IV, V and VI, the intensity of luminescence and light stability of the 2-(2-hydroxyaryl)-quinazolones are markedly superior.
