A novel colorimetric receptor linked to two nitrophenylurea groups was synthesized in good yields, characterized and their chromogenic properties investigated towards various anions (F, Cl, Br, I, OH, AcO, H2PO4 and CN) by UV-Vis techniques. The receptor, effectively and selectively, recognized and distinguished the biologically important F from other anions such as Cl, Br, I etc. in DMSO. This selectivity could be easily observed by the naked eye, indicating that receptor is potential colorimetric sensor for fluoride ion. View Full-Text
