A series of new 4,5-dihydro-1H-1,2,4-triazoles was synthesized from amidrazones and acetylenedicarboxylic acid esters in the presence of pyridine in toluene. The synthesized compounds were characterized by 1H, 13C NMR, FT-IR spectral analyses and XRD data. Optical studies revealed that most of the compounds reported here exhibited emission of blue or greenyellow light upon irradiation in acetone and showed Stokes shifts in the region of 70-96 nm and quantum yields of up to 45%. The interpretation of the experimental findings was supported by state-of-the-art quantum mechanical calculations.
