Abstract

A preorganized tetradentate phenanthroline-derived amide ligand, N,N′-diethyl-N,N′-ditolyl-2,9-dicarboxamide-1,10-phenanthroline (Et-Tol-DAPhen), was found to show high selectivity towards small copper ions, which might be due to the change of the coordination mechanism from tetradentate to terdentate mode.
