The excitation wavelength (λex= 490 nm) at room temperature was determined to examine the impact of pH on the absorption and emission spectra of an eosin y compound dissolved in ethanol at a concentration of 1×10-5 M. The relative fluorescence intensity of eosin in ethanol at the concentration of 1×10-5 M was decreasing with the increasing of acidity (pH < 7) and the red shift of fluorescence was decreasing by adding a few drops of 1N solution of HCl, (pH normal = 7.26). However when a few droplets of NaOH were added, it was observed that the opposite, the relative fluorescence intensity was increasing with increasing basicity (pH > 7) and the red shift of fluorescence was decreasing with increasing basicity. Characteristics like fluorescence and absorption wavelength were further measured, along with graphical correlations like the one between pH and the relative fluorescence intensity. The relative fluorescence intensity of eosin in ethanol at the concentration of 1×10-5 M was decreasing with increasing acidity and the red shift of fluorescence was decreasing with increasing acidity (pH 7). However when a few droplets of NaOH were added, it was observed that the opposite was true: the relative fluorescence intensity was increasing with increasing basicity and the red shift of fluorescence was decreasing with increasing basicity.
Among pH=3 until 13, eosin dyes which are fluorone derivatives of xanthene dyes exist as bivalent or univalent anions; at pH=3, however, some of the dye is available in basic solution . Eosin yellow is a powerful dye but is extremely unstable. Since this is the case, desorption of the dye is a major problem when eosin is adsorbed using the standard immersing approach .

Concerning the energies above do not compensate for the solution environment, such as pH values, the discrepancy is within the accuracy of DFT calculations . Despite serving as a cheap addition, applying eosin because after typical hematoxylin positive control cannot disrupt established processes in institutions or labs . For a less complicated experiment, another dye with a longer half-life, such likerose bengal, erythrosine, or eosin Y can be used instead . Both liquid/dye mixes examined showed a drop in absorption signal and a shift to higher wavelength as temperature was increased . An anionic xanthene dye called fluorescein serves as the basis for dyes and its related chemicals . Eosin Y, a xanthene luminous dye, has indeed been examined for its photocatalytic oxidative breakdown in the presence of artificial light . The pH value is a critical factor in Eosin Y decolorization .
However, at neutral pH, the less advantageous solvation condition of charged systems largely cancels out this improvement . If the buffer volume is too small, the pH will not be maintained, but if it is too large, the positive component of the buffer will compete with drug cations for coupling with the anionic dye, reducing the efficiency of the complex formation process . The anionic eosin Y was absorbed onto the chitin nanoparticle because of the interaction between the protonated aromatic ring of the chitin and the anion exchange group of the dye. Temperature resulted in a greater eosin Y adsorption quantity .

Results and Discussion
In this article, the absorption and fluorescence spectrum of eosin y solution is used as a standard compound dissolved in ethanol with concentration 1×10-5 M, are be measured when the exciting wavelength λex = 490 nm and comparative effect pH values. A correspond to the molecular transition from zero point vibration level of electronic ground state to the vibration levels of electronic excited state, which corresponds to the (0-0) electronic transition, it also shows that the absorbance increases with the molecular concentration of solution which increases, according to beer-lambert low that increases in the molecular concentration of solution and consequently lead to increases in the number of molecular in the solution and this lead to increases in the absorbance. This work includes the study of various forms on the absorbance and fluorescence spectra of eosin yellow.
The pH values depending on the type of solvent and the concentration, before the addition of the basic (Na OH) or acid (HCl), as listed in Table 1 (the original and adjusted pH of eosin y in ethanol at the concentration of 1×10-5 M ). The solutions without HCl or NaOH added the stokes shifts the change depending on the type of solvent. Electrical charges carried by ionization dye molecules are modulated by the medium's pH .
According to Table 2 (absorbance's intensity parameter for eosin y in (ethanol)/pH values at concentration 1×10-5 M) shows that shifted towards the shorter wavelength (blue shift) of absorbance spectra with pH of acidity (pH < 7) by adding a few drops of 1 N solution of HCl also (pH > 7) adding a few drops of 1N solution of NaOH solutions or basicity the wavelength of absorbance spectra is decreasing, pH normal = 7.26. The absorption spectra of eosin solution in ethanol was examined and compared with pH values at concentration 1×10-5 M, as shown in Figure 1 (absorption spectrum for eosin y in different pH value at concentration 1×10-5 M).

Eosin dyes are fluorone derivatives of xanthene dyes that exist as bivalent or univalent anions between pH=3 and 13; at pH lower than 3.0, some amount of dye exists in neutral form [6-8]. The first is the shape of spectrum and the location of the maximum wavelength, where enhancement in the intensity of absorbance of eosin yellow in ethanol at concentration 1×10-5 M with pH > 7 values in the basic medium.
The absorption and emission spectra of eosin y solution dissolved in ethanol with concentration 1×10-5 M, and at exciting wavelength (λex=490 nm), as shown in Figure 2 (absorption and emission spectra of eosin y in ethanol /pH =7.26 at concentration 1×10-5 M). The emission spectrum consists of one peak that is located at wavelength (λmax = 556 nm), also Figure 2 (absorption and emission spectra of eosin y in ethanol/pH =7.26 at concentration of 1×10-5 M and Table 3 (comparative between pH values with λmax and intensity, respectively, for eosin y at the concentration of 1×10-5 M) showing the relative maximum fluorescence intensity of eosin y solution in ethanol (451.294 a.u) at concentration of 1×10-5 M. Before the addition of basic (NaOH) or acid (HCl), the solutions of eosin have pH values depending on the type of solvent. The pH value for eosin solution in ethanol at concentration 1×10-5 M which is measured by pH meter was 7.26, as be denoted in Table 1 (the original and adjusted pH of Eosin y in ethanol at concentration of 1×10-5 M).
Figure 3 (emission spectra of eosin y in ethanol/pH =7.26, pH =5.88, and pH =3.63 at concentration of 1×10-5 M) which shows emission spectra of eosin in ethanol at different values of pH, which are ranging from (7.26, 5.88, and 3.63) at concentration of 1×10-5 M. It is important to observe changes in the emission spectra indicated that the of eosin are converted from a general form into another, when a few droplets of the addition of acid (HCl), the solution of eosin have pH values depending on the type of solvent that were (pH =7.26) before the addition this means a neutral, when adding (HCl), the solution becomes (low basic) or acidic medium and studying the properties of solution. This affected conversion in the eosin pH of solution was reflected on the emission spectra.
When adding HCl a few droplets and its clearly observed intensity of emission spectra of eosin in ethanol at concentration 1×10-5 M was decreased with pH values (7.26, 5.88, and 3.63), Where it is found at ethanol solution, the fluorescence peak was shifted toward longer wavelength (red shift) with pH values (3.63, 5.88, and 7.26), respectively. This shift can be interpreted to the interaction (solute-solvent) molecules with high electric dipole moment in the vibronic excited state which morly, strongly affected in polar surrounding (solvent ethanol), means increasing in the stability of energy excited state due to the relaxation process for solvent molecules, This shift leads to decrease the intensity of spectrum, when pH became (5.88 and 3.63) the intensity was decreased due to the monoanion form (low intensity, the changes in fluorescence intensity of eosin y when addition of acid (HCl) are shown in Figure 3 (emission spectra of eosin y in ethanol/pH =7.26, pH =5.88, and pH =3.63 at concentration 1×10-5 M) and Table 3 (comparative between pH values with λmax and intensity, respectively, for eosin y at concentration 1×10-5 M).
In Figure 1 (absorption spectrum for eosin y in different pH values at concentration of 1×10-5 M), the change in the absorption spectra indicates that eosin forms are converted from the general into another form, this conversion into the eosin form to change of pH value in the solution was affected by the emission spectrum.
Figure 4 (emission spectra of eosin y in ethanol/pH =7.26, pH =8.57, and pH =9.69 at concentration of 1×10-5 M) involves all the fluorescence spectra of eosin y solution in ethanol for different pH values (7.26, 8.57, and 9.69), respectively, when a few droplets of (NaOH) solvent were added. The fluorescence spectra of eosin y solution in ethanol are shifted the decrease of the wavelength with increasing pH values. Figure 4 (emission spectra of eosin y in ethanol/pH =7.26, pH =8.57, and pH =9.69 at concentration of 1×10-5 M) above compares the fluorescence spectrum of eosin y solution in ethanol at 1×10-5 M with excitation wavelength (λex=490 nm) at room temperature for various pH values, illustrated in the increase of pH values leading to the increase of relative fluorescence intensity after initial addition of (NaOH) drops gradually as explanation above this becomes the solution changing to more basic, this increase in the intensity is due to the dainion form (high intensity) was prevalent. According to Table 3 (comparative between pH values with λmax and intensity respectively for eosin y at concentration 1×10-5 M) involved in evaluating fluorescence spectra for pH ranged (7.26, 8.57, and 9.69) shows the intensity for spectra increased (451.294, 540.407, and 635.378), respectively, with pH of solution, as demonstrated in Figure 4.

Figure 5 (comparative intensity of emission spectrum of each eosin y in ethanol in different pH values at 1×10-5 M) shows the comparison between fluorescence spectra of eosin y solution dissolved in ethanol with concentration of 1×10-5 M at excited wavelength (λex= 490 nm), illustrates the emission spectrum at the consists of one peak located at wavelengths (550 nm, 555 nm, and 556 nm) at pH values (3.63,5.88, and 7.27), respectively. For the peaks of fluorescence, it is observed that there is a shift happening toward the longer wavelength with increases in the solvent polarity. Figure 5 (comparative intensity of emission spectrum of each eosin y in ethanol in different pH values at 1×10-5 M) for eosin y solution in ethanol at 1×10-5 M) shows clearly observed comparison of the relative fluorescence intensity for various pH values (7.26, 5.88, and 3.63), respectively, of eosin y solution in ethanol at concentration 1×10-5 M, it is noticed that relative fluorescence intensity was decreased after the initial addition of (HCl) gradually with the decreasing of pH values, and also the shift was decrease. Although there is a (red shift) which is occurred, the relative fluorescence intensity was increased, expect when pH values (8.57, 9.69) respectively, illustrates the emission spectrum for (ethanol) at the consists of one peak located at wavelengths (550 nm and 548 nm), it is observed that there is a shift happening decreased, the intensity increase with increasing the pH values with the concentration 1×10-5 M after addition (NaOH and HCl).
Figure 6 (discern the relation between pH values with (λmax and intensity, respectively) for eosin y solution in ethanol at 1×10-5 M, illustrated in the increase of pH values leading to the increase of intensity of fluorescence spectrum.
In the present article, the following conclusions are reached:
The red shift of fluorescence was decreased with the increasing of acidity (pH < 7), also the red shift was decreased with the increasing basicity (pH > 7). The fluorescence intensity of eosin solution y at in ethanol at the concentration of 1×10-5 M was dependent on pH value and its increasing pH values. Eosin react with NaOH to forms different the solute molecules converted into the dianoin species upon an increase in pH which is affected by fluorescence intensity. Eosin reacts with HCl to forms different the solute molecules converted into the monoanoin species upon an increase in pH which is effect of fluorescence intensity. After initial addition of (HCl), illustrated in the decrease of pH values leading to the decrease the relative fluorescence intensity and shifted was decreased. After initial addition of (NaOH), illustrated in the increase of pH values leading to the increase of relative fluorescence intensity while shifted was decreased. Increasing acidity (pH <7) and rising basicity (pH > 7) both had effect on the fluorescence's red shift. The eosin y solution at in ethanol at concentration 1×10-5 M exhibited a pH-dependent, rising fluorescence intensity when the pH value was increased.
