Various pyrene derivatives were synthesized and systematically examined in micelles. Synthesized mono and bispyrene derivatives were tested in micelles so that they displayed a strong excimer band and the excimer band was quenched in the presence of TNT and RDX. In the optimized condition, the binding constant for TNT of a simple dipyrene derivative 4 was increased up to 1.0 × 106 M−1 in cetyl trimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) micelles, which allowed for the detection of 2 ppb of TNT and 334 ppb of RDX by fluorescence titrations.
