This project focused on developing reaction-based fluorescent probes for detecting triazines. Specifically, aminomethyl-functionalized naphthalene, pyrene, and coumarin probes were synthesized and reacted with a series of chlorotriazines. Successful coupling conditions for three triazines were identified. Atrazine proved less reactive and requires alternate conditions. Ongoing efforts are focused on characterizing the optical properties of the coupled and uncoupled probes to gauge their potential for use as portable triazine detectors.
