In this study, we demonstrated a highly sensitive, selective, and reversible chemosensor for Hg(2+) determination. This chemosensor was synthesized by direct condensation of thymin-1-ylacetic acid with zinc tetraaminoporphyrin, which has a porphyrin core as the fluorophore and four thymine (T) moieties as the specific interaction sites for Hg(2+) .
