Two polyfluorenes with dipicolylamine (DPA) pendant, PF–TDPA and PF–HDPA, are designed and synthesized. Both the fluorescence of PF–TDPA and PF–HDPA can be efficiently quenched by Cu2+ ions in a mixed solvent of tetrahydrofuran and HEPES. However, only PF–TDPA with a rigid side chain can selectively and sensitively detect histidine over other amino acids with a fluorescence recovery with a detection limit of 0.1 × 10−6 M.
