A novel feric ion-selective rhodamine-based fluorescent chemosensor, which contains a bis-aminoxy chain moiety, has been developed. The multi-dentate binding site of rhodamine fluorophore shows selective detection of ferric iron over other biologically important metal ions in aqueous media and also shows 1:1 binding stoichiometry.
