Abstract

This thesis reports the synthesis of four receptors designed to be potential fluorescent sensors for anions. The binding of these receptors to a series of anions were studied in the organic solvent DMSO; following this, a series of studies on the fluorimeter were conducted to assess their sensing potential. This thesis also reports the study of two SSAs and their neutral counterparts previously synthesised by Tjorge Neumann (University of Kiel). The self-associative properties of the four compounds were studied in the solution state to discern any structure specific activity, and assess their potential as a new class of SSAs.
