The synthesis and evaluation of a novel calix[4]arene-based fluorescent chemosensor 1 for the detection of I. is described. The fluorescent changes observed upon addition of various anions show that 1 is selective for I. over other anions. Addition of I. results in ratiometric measurements with 1 : 1 complex ratio.
