To prepare 2′,7′-Dichlorofluorescein diacetate :

Solution A: Saturated solution of lead tetraacetate (~2%) (Cat. No. 15370) in glacial acetic acid
Solution B: 2′,7′-Dichlorofluorescein in ethanol (0.2-1%)
Mix 5 mL solution A with 5 mL solution B and bring to 200 mL with toluene, just prior to using. Solution should be freshly prepared each time. Dipping time: 10 sec.

2′,7′-Dichlorofluorescein diacetate may be used as a superior gas phase alternative to underivatized fluorescein and as a component/substrate of the 2′,7′-dichlorofluorescein diacetate assay to quantitate reactive oxygen species (ROS). It may also be used as a dip reagent for the fluorimetric determination of vicinal diols, glycosides and phenols.
