Abstract [reaction: see text] A new fluorescent probe N-butyl-4,5-di[2-(phenylamino)ethylamino]-1,8-naphthalimide 1 senses only Cu(II) among heavy and transition metal (HTM) ions by means of a colorimetric (primrose yellow to pink) method with a large red-shift in emission (green to red) attributed to the deprotonation of the secondary amines as a receptor conjugated to the naphthalimide fluorophore.
