This was because ethanol has low solvation of antioxidant compound which was caused by the presence of longer ethyl radical than the methyl radical in methanol [19].
Dyes 1 and 2 are able to form hydrogen bonds with polar solvent molecules such as DMF, while dyes 1a and 2a are not, since the proton near the nitrogen atom is substituted there by ethyl radicals. Formation of the H-bonds in 1 and 2 shifts the electronic density along the molecular backbone of the dye and this effect leads to hindering rotation of the rhodanine moiety around the C=C bond of the central conjugated system to achieve the stable isomer form intrinsic of the dyes 1a and 2a.
