Summary The synthesis and complete characterisation of the fluorescent ligand, 4-acridinol-1-sulphonic acid (the acridine analogue of 8-quinolinol-5-sulfonic acid) is described. Using a judicious array of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy experiments, the structural elucidation and full assignment of all proton and carbon chemical shifts were afforded. The 4-acridinol-1-sulphonic acid was found to behave in a similar manner to 8-quinolinol-5-sulphonic acid, forming fluorescent complexes with magnesium(II) and zinc(II). The uncorrected emission maxima for the metal–acridinol complexes were found to be at around 620 nm compared to 505 nm for the respective quinolinol complexes. Unfortunately, preliminary spectrofluorimetric analytical figures of merit revealed that the detection limits of the new acridinol metal complexes were one and a half orders of magnitude poorer than those attained with the corresponding quinolinol ligand. However, in contrast to 8-quinolinol-5-sulphonic acid, the 4-acridinol-1-sulphonic acid ligand showed considerable selectivity for magnesium(II) and zinc(II) over aluminium(III).
