A novel amphiphilic imidazolium-based probe containing a dansyl fluorophore and a long cetyl chain has been developed for ATP recognition. The probe forms self-assembled micelle-like aggregates at low concentration in its aqueous solution and can selectively recognize ATP among other bioactive anions with a significant enhancement in fluorescence emission.
