Triphenylbenzene Sensor for Selective Detection of Picric Acid


A C 3-symmetric triphenylbenzene based photoluminescent compound, 1,3,5-tris(4′-(N-methylamino)phenyl) benzene ([NHMe]3TAPB), has been synthesized by mono-N-methylation of 1,3,5-tris(4′-aminophenyl) benzene (TAPB) and structurally characterized. [NHMe]3TAPB acts as a selective fluorescent sensor for picric acid (PA) with a detection limit as low as 2.25 ppm… (More)
