The use of Lithium salts is growing at a rapid rate. With Lithium ion battery technology booming and Lithium salts used for the treatment of psychosis, the need for a quick, affordable, and easy Lithium ion detection method is growing. Currently, there are very few ways to optically detect the Lithium ion in aqueous solutions. Herein, we describe the progress towards a water soluble, fluorescent Lithium ion sensor utilizing a 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diazaindacene (BODIPY) fluorophore core.
