A fluorescent metal sensor based on macrocyclic chelation

Author affiliations


The ethylenediamine functionalized quinacridone derivatives 3a–c display an orange fluorescence (λem(max) = 558 nm) which is quenched upon addition of coordinating metal ions by formation of a macrocyclic chelate bringing metal ion and fluorophore in close proximity to one another.
