This study demonstrated that Zinpyr-1·Zn2+ acts as a fluorescent and colorimetric sensor for pyrophosphate at pH 7.4. In addition, Zinpyr-1·Cu2+ and DIARB-1·Cu2+ complexes were found to act as selective fluorescent sensors for pyrophosphate. Furthermore, the chemosensors Zinpyr-1· Zn2+ and Zinpyr-1·Cu2+ show highly selective and ratiometric fluorescence changes for pyrophosphate compared with H2PO 4-.
