As we are developing a chemosensor for TNP, the main motivation behind the synthesis of compound A is that it was expected to become a nonfluorescent moiety as photoinduced electron transfer (PET) process can take place due to presence of imino nitrogen atom [23].
Previously, it was shown that N,N'-cyclic azomethine imines are capable of photochromic transformation due to reversible intramolecular cyclization [14, 30, 31]; however, the ionochromic and chemosensor properties of azomethine imines remained to be virtually unexplored.
