One of these isolated molecules is called dansylglycine (or 2-[[5-(dimethylamino)naphthalen-1-yl]sulfonylamino] acetic acid) which has interesting properties as a colored molecule and as a fluorescent dye in water and dioxane, and we believe that it could be of interest to study their molecular reactivity by using the ideas of conceptual DFT [1-5], in the same way of our previous works [6-10].

Hence by using aqueous solutions containing ~10-50% dioxane, one may expect to simulate to some degree the situation in active site cavities [76] and hence to extrapolate the data to physiological conditions.
The 1,4 dioxane is a colourless, flammable liquid with faint odour and belongs to heterocyclic organic compound with two oxygen atoms, each with free electrons which make them hydrophilic and miscible in water (Fig.
