(Figure Presented) A new series of benzoylthiourea derivatives of 1, 3, and 5 were prepared, and their chemodosimetric behaviors toward metal cations were investigated in aqueous media at room temperature. Among various metal cations tested, exclusively Hg2+ ion responses to irreversible color changes of receptors, along with distinctive blue shifts in UV/vis spectra. The receptors can be applicable for the monitoring of Hg2+ ion in aqueous solution with a pH span 4-9.
