Abstract

We synthesized a novel tripodal fluorescent receptor bearing benzimidazole motifs as recognition sites in the pods of the receptor. The recognition behavior of the receptor toward various anions was evaluated in CH 3CN/H2O (9:1, v/v) solution. The receptor showed changes in fluorescent intensity only with 1-, but it showed no significant changes on addition of other anions such as F-, Cl-, Br-, HSO4-, NO3-, CH 3COO-, and H2PO4-.
