Optical chemosensors became increasingly popular in the last decades due to many new possibilities and applications offered by them compared to conventional analytical methods. Particularly, they are free of electromagnetic interferences, enable non-invasive or minimally invasive read-out with compact and inexpensive read-out devices, imaging of analyte distribution on surfaces as well measurements in small samples such as cells and organelles. Among optical sensors and probes, those based on luminescent materials are probably the most numerous ones. In this talk we will briefly discuss the general concepts of sensing with luminescence-based chemosensors and provide an overview of the materials developed in our group along with some application examples. Particularly, sensors for oxygen, pH, basic and acidic gases, ions and temperature will be discussed.
