TL;DR: The location of the "spacer-receptor" unit in a 4-aminonaphthalimide fluorophore, which undergoes internal charge transfer in the excited state, is crucial for the suitability of the compound as a pH sensor as discussed by the authors.
Abstract: The location of the “spacer–receptor” unit in a 4-aminonaphthalimide fluorophore, which undergoes internal charge transfer in the excited state, is crucial for the suitability of the compound as a pH sensor. In studies of the pH dependence of the fluorescence of the regioisomers 1 and 2, only 1 displayed desirable properties.

TL;DR: This critical review has been tailored for a broad audience of chemists, biochemists and materials scientists; the basics of lanthanide photophysics are highlighted together with the synthetic strategies used to insert these ions into mono- and polymetallic molecular edifices.
Abstract: Lanthanide ions possess fascinating optical properties and their discovery, first industrial uses and present high technological applications are largely governed by their interaction with light. Lighting devices (economical luminescent lamps, light emitting diodes), television and computer displays, optical fibres, optical amplifiers, lasers, as well as responsive luminescent stains for biomedical analysis, medical diagnosis, and cell imaging rely heavily on lanthanide ions. This critical review has been tailored for a broad audience of chemists, biochemists and materials scientists; the basics of lanthanide photophysics are highlighted together with the synthetic strategies used to insert these ions into mono- and polymetallic molecular edifices. Recent advances in NIR-emitting materials, including liquid crystals, and in the control of luminescent properties in polymetallic assemblies are also presented. (210 references.)

TL;DR: Anion recognition chemistry has grown from its beginnings with positively charged ammonium cryptand receptors for halide binding to a plethora of charged and neutral, cyclic and acyclic, inorganic and organic supramolecular host systems for the selective complexation, detection, and separation of anionic guest species.
Abstract: Anion recognition chemistry has grown from its beginnings in the late 1960s with positively charged ammonium cryptand receptors for halide binding to, at the end of the millennium, a plethora of charged and neutral, cyclic and acyclic, inorganic and organic supramolecular host systems for the selective complexation, detection, and separation of anionic guest species. Solvation effects and pH values have been shown to play crucial roles in the overall anion recognition process. More recent developments include exciting advances in anion-templated syntheses and directed self-assembly, ion-pair recognition, and the function of anions in supramolecular catalysis.
