Norharmane: Old yet highly selective dual channel ratiometric fluoride and hydrogen sulfate ion sensor

Author affiliations

Abstract

Norharmane provides a simple unexplored class of anion receptor, that allows for the ratiometric selective detection of F and HSO4 ions. The presence of a strong base can easily form hydrogen bonds with the acidic hydrogen bond donor moiety and the relatively strong acid can easily protonate the basic hydrogen bond acceptor moiety, which can modulate the optical response and can detect the anions efficiently with high selectivity. In view of that, it is promising to conceive the use of these systems in various sensing applications as well as in other situations, such as anion transport and purification, where the availability of cheap and easy-to-make anion receptors, would be advantageous.
