A novel dimeric calixpyrrole has been synthesized. The dimer forms stable complexes with p-nitrophenolate ion with a concomitant reduction in extinction coefficient. The chromogenic anion is displaced by the addition of various anions like fluoride and acetate. Effective optical sensing of these anions is accomplished using the calixpyrrole dimer.
