Abstract

This mini-review focuses on fluorescent optically active crown ethers (polymeric derivatives are not included) reported in the literature (according to our knowledge), of which enantiomeric recognition ability, and in some cases, also inorganic cation complexation properties, were investigated by the sensitive and versatile fluorescence spectroscopy. These crown ether-based chemosensors contain various fluorophore signaling units such as binaphthyl, anthracene, pyrene, tryptophan, benzimidazole, terpyridine, acridine, phenazine, acridone, BODIPY, and another conjugated aromatic one.
