Photoreversible compounds are used as metal ion sensing reagents. Particularly, spiropyrans modified to incorporate a metal ion complexation site such as, 8-hydroxyquinoline, onto the backbone of the spiropyran, are used as the photoreversible metal ion sensing reagents. Partial least-squares discriminant analysis is used to differentiate among the metal ions in a solution.
