A novel luminescent Zn2+ ions chemosensor, a cyclometalated platinum(II) bipyridyl acetylide complex, was designed. Of particular significance is that it shows a high sensitivity towards Zn2+ ions without interference from other biologically important cations in acetonitrile. The tautomerization of amide favors detecting Zn2+ ions among other HTM (heavy and transition metal) ions in aqueous systems.
