An original gram-scale synthesis of O-acetylated forms of coelenterazine, furimazine or hydroxy-bearing analogues of luciferins is described. The comparison over two hours of their bioluminescence, using the nanoKAZ/NanoLuc luciferase, provides remarkable insights useful for the selection of a substrate adapted for a given application.
