Cu(II) exclusively detectable. Cu(I) can't be stabilized.


This paper reports the chemosensing properties of a commercially available fluorescent probe, 1,8-diamino naphthalene for copper ion detection in the aqueous medium and its application in bioimaging. The proposed mechanism involves fluorescence quenching of the...
