Title: 2-Aminopyridine derivative as fluorescence 'On-Off' molecular switch for selective detection of Fe3+/Hg2+
Authors: Rik Rani Koner, Sougata Sinha, Sunil Kumar, Chayan K. Nandi, Subrata Ghosh
Journal: Tetrahedron Letters
Year: 2012
Volume: 53

In this research we have utilized a small one-step synthesizable organic molecule, 2-amino-6-methyl-4-phenyl-nicotinonitrile, as a fluorescence chemosensor for selective detection of two very important metal ions viz iron and mercury using sophisticated spectroscopic tools. For more information, read the article: [www.sciencedirect.com].
This chemosensor is the first output of the newly setup synthesis and characterization labs. This experimental research by Dr. Rik Koner, Chayan Nandi and Subrata Ghosh with their PhD scholars Sougata Sinha and Sunil kumar was supported by grants from DST and IIT Mandi.

Flourescence chemosensors are used as chemical devices to detect metal ions in various samples. It is a major challenge to design and synthesis new chemosensors that selectively detect biologically and enenvironmentally important metal ions in the presence of many other metal ions. Such chemosensors could be used to monitor trace amounts of toxic pollutants, the level of metal ions in various samples, etc.
