Azulene–boronate esters: colorimetric indicators for fluoride in drinking water
Sensitive and selective fluoride indicators consisting of a boronate ester receptor motif, conjugated to an azulene reporter motif, are described. These exhibit a colour change visible to the naked eye when exposed to fluoride.
A two-photon fluorescent probe for specific detection of hydrogen sulfide based on a familiar ESIPT fluorophore bearing AIE characteristics
A two-photon fluorescent probe based on an ESIPT fluorophore bearing AIE characteristics was utilized to detect H2S.
