Abstract

Two new emissive chemosensors based on coumarin-343 have been synthesized, and their photophysical studies conducted. L1 contains an aza-thio macrocycle ring as the chelating unit, which has great affinity for soft metal ions, whereas L2 is a parent species without macrocyclic unit. Both compounds were separated by column chromatography and characterized by elemental analysis, 1H,13C NMR, UV-vis and FAB mass spectroscopy. The X-ray structures of L1 and L2 and the supramolecular interactions in the solid state are discussed. Preliminary results on the metal-ion sensing effects of the ligands are presented. Titrations with Ag+, Pd2+ and Ni2+ have been studied by UV-vis absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
