Red means CN: A new type of diketopyrrolopyrrole-based chromophore has been synthesized as a colorimetric and fluorescent probe for the detection of cyanide using only two reaction steps. Through the addition of cyanide to the chromophore, the fluorescence emission and color were greatly changed in a highly sensitive and selective manner.
