Anthracene based amino acids are synthesized as a new class of fluorescence sensors for the detection of metal ions. Synthesized amino acids were characterized with 1H NMR, 13C NMR, IR and LCMS spectroscopy. The electro- and photo-luminescent spectra of the fluorescent amino acids were studied and the interaction of 18b with metal ions was discussed. Among various metal ions screened, the fluorescence of the amino acid was quenched with Fe3+ion more selectively and efficiently.
