A modular approach to the synthesis of sensors is described. In this approach a central dye scaffold, prepared from the SNAr reaction between a halo-substituted azo-dye and a disubstituted phenol, was decorated with a representative carbohydrate or macrocycle using Sharpless click chemistry. Regiochemical issues in the click reaction are also addressed.
