  • Published : 2008.12.31


Anthracene appended new host compounds have been synthesized by imine reaction. Fluorescent open chain host compounds Trisanthryl-tris(2-aminoethyl)imine 1 was synthesized from the reaction of tris(2-aminoethyl)amine and anthracene-9-carboxaldehyde in EtOH. Tris-10-chloroanthryl-tris(2-aminoethyl)imine 2 was synthesized from tris(2-aminoethyl)amine and 10-chloro-9-anthraldehyde in EtOH. The structures of all reaction product were identified by $^1H$ NMR, $^{13}C$ NMR, GC/MS, FAB Mass, IR spectrum and DSC. Cation complexation behavior was investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy measurements. The capability of transition metals cation recognition between fluorescent open chain host compound 1, 2 were investigated with $Co^{2+},\;Ni^{2+}\;and\;Cu^{2+}$. The fluorescence intensity was increased by host compounds corresponding guest cations. The relative order of fluorescence intensity changes were $Co^{2+}>Cu^{2+}>Ni^{2+}$. Compound 2 is very sensitive fluorescent sensor of $Co^{2+}$ ion.
