Visual sensing of Ca2+ ion via photoreaction of fluorenyl ester-armed cyclen

Author affiliations

Abstract

Fluorenyl ester-armed cyclen gave fluorenone and related decomposition compounds upon photoirradiation. The reaction was effectively suppressed by the formation of an octacoordinated Ca2+ complex while Na+ and other alkali/alkaline earth metal cations had little influence. Since the production efficiency of fluorescent fluorenone related well to the concentration of the Ca2+ ion, the photoreaction of this armed cyclen offered the naked-eye detection of Ca2+ ion in aqueous samples.
