A glowing response: Novel fluoride-selective sensors, utilizing fluoride-induced lactonization to highly fluorescent coumarin derivatives, are reported. The incorporation of this sensory system into a conjugated polymer amplifies the fluorescence response which can be detected visually, see scheme; TIPS=triisopropylsilyl.
