    • Abstract


      The interaction of fluoride ion with three oxime based receptors containing additional aromatic nitro-substituents was studied by using colorimetric and NMR spectroscopy. Colorimetric responses of the receptors towards fluoride ion were found to be highly dependent on the position of the nitro substituent inthe aromatic backbone. While the ortho and para nitro-substituted receptors showed intense colour change and associated colorimetric response upon addition of fluoride, the meta derivative did not provide any visible deviation in colour as well as colorimetric behaviour. Further, due to the presence of H-bond acceptor motif, the receptor–fluoride complexes formed by both ortho and para nitro-substituted derivatives are reasonably labile and dissociate to automatically result in the free receptor species within a short time span. This allowed reuseof the receptor solution for selective and successive recognition of fluoride by colorimetric technique without any external trigger.
