AbstractA structurally characterized novel dual–pocketed tetra–conjugated bisphenol–based chromophore (fluorescence = 652 nm) was synthesized in gram scale in ~90% yield from its tetraaldehyde. Highly selective, naked-eye detection of CN− (DMSO/H2O) was confirmed by interferent testing. A detection limit of 0.38 µM, within the permissible limit of CN− concentration in drinking water was achieved as mandated by WHO. The “reversibility” study shows potential applicability and reusability of Sen. Moreover, cost-effective and on-site interfaces, application tools such as fabricated cotton swabs, plastic Petri dishes, and filter papers further demonstrated the specific selectivity of Sen for the toxic CN−. In addition, an easily available and handy smartphone-assisted “Color Picker” app was utilized to help estimate the concentration of CN− ion present. A dual phenol deprotonation mechanism is active and supported by 1H NMR spectroscopic data and DFT calculation results.
