Abstract

Recent advances regarding podand derivatives which are non-cyclic crown ethers incorporating functional groups have been reviewed. Particular attention has been paid to fluorophore appended non-cyclic crown ethers as sensors for cation detection. Their complexation behavior with alkali and alkaline earth cations and interactions between their terminal groups is also discussed in detail.
