A calixarene based fluorescent Sr2+ and Ca2+ probe.


A fluorescent probe, PyCalix, which has two pyrene moieties at the lower rim of a calix[4]arene fixed in the cone conformation was synthesized and its complexation behavior with alkali and alkaline earth cations was studied by fluorescence spectrometry. The compound showed intramolecular excimer emission at approximately 480 nm in the fluorescence spectra… (More)
