Abstract

A new anthracene derivative of calix[4]arene was synthesized as a highly fluorescent compound. This compound was examined for its fluorescent properties towards different metal ions (Li^+, Na^+, Mg^{2+}, Ca^{2+}, Ba^{2+}, Ni^{2+}, Cu^{2+}, Zn^{2+}, Pb^{2+}) by UV and fluorescence spectroscopy. On complexation by alkaline earth metal cations and transition metal cations, the fluorescence spectrum was quenched. In particular, Ca^{2+} caused greater than 98% quenching of the anthracene derivative of calix[4]arene.
