Abstract

A Cu(II) complex of a tripodal receptor bearing an anthracene moiety on one pod as a fluorophore was synthesized. The anion recognition behavior of the Cu(II) complex was evaluated in CH3CN/H2O (95:5, v/v), resulting in an extremely high selectivity for iodide over other anions such as F-, Cl-, Br-, NO3-, CH3COO-, and H2 PO2-. The Cu(II) complex acts as a selective probe for estimating iodide even in the presence of other anions without any interference.
