Switching the recognition preference of rhodamine B spirolactam by replacing one atom: Design of rhodamine B thiohydrazide for recognition of Hg(II) in aqueous solution

A new chemosensor based on rhodamine B thiohydrazide is described. Chemosensor B was found to show a reversible dual chromo- and fluorogenic response toward Hg2+ in aqueous solution in a highly selective and sensitive manner. This was suggested to result from the coordination of Hg2+ at the N, S binding sites in B to open its spiro ring.
