Abstract:

A polyfunctional amine, such as cyclam, substituted with 4-N,N-dimethylamino benzonitrile, exhibits triple fluorescence and complexes with metal ions. The complexation of metal ions with the fluorophore changes the triple fluorescence characteristics of the fluorophore, Thus, this substituted polyfunctional amine provides an effective indicator for the qualitative and quantitative detection of metals.
