Rhodamine hydrazide-based chemosensors that can detect volatile acidic gases in solid state have been developed. The rhodamine hydrazide probes adsorbed on filter paper respond fluorescently and colorimetrically only to volatile acidic gases but not to organic bases nor to other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Diethyl chlorophosphate (DCP), one of model compounds used for the studies of Chemical Warfare Agent (CWA), could also be detected by using this method.
