In this review, recently reported Hg ion sensors are briefly discussed. We also summarized selectivity and sensitivity of various chemosensors for mercury ions. The basic principle for emission of radiation, pH limit, suitable solvent, detection limit, mode of binding, ratio between metal and ligand are detailed in this paper.
