A novel heterotrinuclear complex [Cu₂(L)Na(µ-NO₃)]∙CH₃OH∙CHCl₃ derived from a symmetric bis(salamo)-type tetraoxime H₄L having a naphthalenediol unit, was prepared and structurally characterized via means of elemental analyses, UV-Vis, FT-IR, fluorescent spectra and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The heterobimetallic Cu(II)⁻Na(I) complex was acquired

A novel, simple, highly selective, and sensitive fluorescence chemosensor for detecting Cd2+ that was constructed from a bis(salamo)-type compound (H₄L) with two N₂O₂ chelating moieties as ionophore was successfully developed. Sensor H₄L could show fluorescence turn-on response rapidly and significant
