Abstract

A new anthracene-based fluorescent PET sensor 1 with a tridentate ionophore of amide/β-amino alcohol displays very good selectivity and sensitivity for Fe 3+ (K a∈=∈1.6∈×∈10 3M -1) and Hg 2+ (K a∈=∈2. 1∈×∈10 3M -1) in CH 3CN-H 2O (3:7, v/v) with detection limit of 1 μM. More fluorescence enhancement was observed when 1 selectively detected Fe 3+ or Hg 2+ in CH 3CN and its detection limit was up to 0.03 μM.
