A poly(2-isopropyl-2-oxazoline)-containing mercury ion (Hg2+)-responsive uracil moiety (U-PiPOx-U) was synthesized and it exhibited thermoresponsiveness in its aqueous solution. The changes in the UV-Vis absorption and thermoresponsiveness of U-PiPOx-U upon the addition of Hg2+ were studied. Selective sensing of Hg2+ was also investigated.
