Abstract: 2,7-Diferrocenyl-3,6-diazaocta-2,6-diene (DFDD), obtained by condensation reaction of acetylferrocene and ethylenediamine, exhibits Zn2+ ion-induced enhancement of fluorescence intensity and Ag+ ion-induced quenching of fluorescence intensity. The Zn2+ ion shifts the redox potential of DFDD from +0.660 V ± 0.005 V to + 0.615 ± 0.005 V as observed by cyclic voltammetry and square wave voltammetry. Ca2+, Mg2+, Mn2+, Fe2+, Co2+, Ni2+, Cu2+, Cd2+, Pb2+ and Hg2+ have very little effect on fluorescence intensity of DFDD. These metal ions together with Ag+ ion have no effect on the electrochemistry of DFDD. Both, fluorescence and UV-visible spectroscopic data show a 1:1 interaction between DFDD and Zn2+ with binding constant 75 M -1. The applicability of DFDD as fluorescence sensor for Zn2+ ion has been shown in its estimation in commercial tablets.
