2-Hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde oxime (receptor 1) serves as a selective chemosensor for cyanide anion (CN-). In the presence of CN-, an enhanced fluorescent intensity and red-shift were observed. The observed complexation between receptor 1 and CN- may cause by a hydrogen bonding interaction between the OH group of receptor 1 and CN-.
