Selectivity of the reported dimethyl-substituted (R,R)-1, the diisobutyl-substituted (R,R)-2 acridino-18-crown-6 ethers and the newly synthesized acridino-crown ether (S,S)-3 containing the methyl groups one carbon-carbon bond further away from the acridine unit was studied towards the enantiomers of the hydrogen perchlorate salts of α-phenylethylamine, α-(1-naphthyl)ethylamine, phenylglycine methyl ester and phenylalanine methyl ester using fluorescence.
