Chemosensors: Chemosensors is a major component of Supramolecular Chemistry which is based on molecular recognition. Chemosensors are simple inorganic or organic entities easily synthesized which are used to discriminate ionic species in aqueous and organic mediums by means of displaying changes in absorption spectra and more importantly naked eye observation of colorimetric activities. Chemosensors are fast becoming very popular and powerful analytical tools replacing the high cost traditional tools such as inductive coupled plasma (ICP) etc. The sensitivity and selectivity of a specific sensor towards a specific anion or cati
