A pyridinium cation–π interaction sensor for the fluorescent detection of alkyl halides

Author affiliations

Abstract

N-Alkylation of a novel pyridine sensor results in pyridinium salts whose conformations are stabilised by pyridinium cation–π interactions resulting in a fluorescent response that can be used to sense the presence of alkylating agents in solution at low concentration.
