Sensing anions via fluorescence changes has been an active research target in recent years due to its simplicity and the high detection limits this approach permits. In this mini review, we cover the recent development of anion selective fluorescent chemosensors reported from our group. We classify the anion selective fluorescent chemosensors according to their topology and structure, which includes urea or thiourea derivatives, imidazolium derivatives, Zn-DPA derivatives and boronic acid modified systems.
