Abstract

A fluorescent receptor for underivatized amino acids was developed. The receptor based on triaza-18-crown-6 ether combined with two guanidinium groups could bind several biologically important amino acids in aqueous methanol solution and showed fluorescence enhancement response by a PET (photoinduced electron transfer) mechanism.
