A novel rhodamine B Schiff-base fluorescence probe 1 was synthesized and characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, MS and single-crystal X-ray analysis. The recognition properties of the probe 1 with Hg2+ ions were investigated in ethanol-water (V/V=7/3, HEPES 10 mmol/L, pH=7.0) by the UV-Vis spectrophotometry and the fluorescence spectrophotometry. The probe 1 showed remarkable "turn-on" fluorescent responses to Hg2+ with good selectivity over the other metal ions examined. The 1:1 binding model of probe 1 with Hg2+ was established by Job's plot and MS spectra. The probe can be applied to the quantitative analysis of Hg2+ with a linear range covering from 0 to 50 μmol/L. The fluorescence imaging experiments in MGC-803 living cells demonstrated that 1 could be used in biological systems to monitor Hg2+.
