Selective, sensitive fluorescent probes for ClO are desirable due to the importance of ClO in biological processes. Herein, a readily available turn-off fluorescent probe for ClO is reported, which displays highly selectivity and sensitivity over other common anions and reactive oxygen/nitrogen. Moreover, it is able to detect ClO in Ramos cells via cellular imaging.
