1,5-bis(dicarboxymethylaminomethyl)-2,6- dihydroxynaphthalene as a selective spectrofluorimetric reagent for calcium.

Abstract

1,5-Bis(dicarboxymethylaminomethyl)-2,6-dihydroxynaphthalene (BDDN) forms fluorescent complexes with aluminium, barium, beryllium, calcium, magnesium and strontium. All the complexes have 2:1 metal :ligand ratios. Barium, calcium, magnesium and strontium exhibit maximal fluorescence at pH 11.7, with excitation and emission maxima at 385 and 445 nm… (More)
