Abstract: Herein, the synthesis and characterization of a novel chiral Schiff bases derived from ferrocene, coded as 3, have been reported. The sensing behavior of the synthesized compound has been examined towards the enantiomers of some amino acids (methionine, alanine, serine, histidine, and threonine) by spectrofluorimetric method. The fluorescence response of compound 3 showed noticeable enhancement upon addition of d-methionine compared to l-methionine and kept nearly linear correlation with the concentration of d-methionine. The value of enantiomeric fluorescence difference ratio (ef) has been determined to be 1.54 when d- and l- methionine amount is 100 times more than compound 3. The results showed that the compound 3 can be used as a sensor for enantio-selective recognition of d-methionine.
