The synthesis and fluorescence property of 3-amino-N-(7′-methoxy-4′-methylcoumaryl)phthalimide (AMMP) are described. The fluorescence of AMMP originated during the intramolecular energy transfer from the coumarin moiety to the phthalimde moiety in various solvents. The ab initio quantum chemical calculation of the AMMP revealed that the HOMO and LUMO of AMMP were localized in the coumarin and phthalimide moieties, respectively.
