BEER, P.D. ... et al, 1996. Selective fluorimetric recognition of dihydrogen phosphate over chloride anions by a novel ruthenium(II) bipyridyl receptor complex. Analytical Communications, 33 (10), pp. 365 -366
A novel ruthenium(II) tris(bipyridyl) receptor complex has been prepared and shown by 1H NMR and fluorescence emission spectroscopy to exhibit exclusive selectivity for the dihydrogen phosphate anion in preference to chloride.
