Phosphate ions in a bind: The tetrakis(bisurea)-decorated tetraphenylethene (TPE) displays fluorescence “turn-on” over a wide concentration range upon phosphate coordination. The fluorescence enhancement can be attributed to the restriction of the intramolecular rotation of TPE by anion coordination. This “anion-coordination-induced emission” (ACIE) is another approach for fluorescence turn-on.
