A new anthracene derivative of calixarene was synthesized as a highly fluorescent compound. This compound was examined for its fluorescent properties towards different metal ions (Li , Na , Mg 2 , Ca 2 , Ba 2 , Ni 2 , Cu 2 , Zn 2 , Pb 2 ) by UV and fluorescence spectroscopy. On complexation by alkaline earth metal cations and transition metal cations, the fluorescence spectrum was quenched. In particular, Ca 2 caused greater than 98% quenching of the anthracene derivative of calixarene.
