Felton, Cara E., Harding, Lindsay P., Jones, Jennifer E., Kariuki, Benson M., Pope, Simon J. A. and Rice, Craig R. (2008) A wavelength and lifetime responsive cryptate-containing fluorescent probe for zinc ions in water. Chemical Communications (46). pp. 6185-6187. ISSN 1359-7345

A diamino-functionalised cryptate can react irreversibly with butanal in water, in the presence of an excess of a metal ion, to form a cyclised bis-aminal complex, which displays metal-dependent luminescence properties.
