Abstract We present here a novel probe, coumarin 3-azomethine derivative ( AGB ), which can detect selectively mercuric ions (Hg 2+ ) via a hydrolysis reaction promoted by these ions. Interestingly, the probe can be used to assess the response to Hg 2+ even in the presence of the most important biothiols-glutathione and cysteine—and could be used in the Hg 2+ —imaging in living cells.
