Technical Abstract: The synthesis and characterization of an artificial ion channel containing both fluorescent and redox-active centers is described. fluorescence spectroscopy was used to study qualitative and quantitative aspects of the coordination of alkali metal cations and black lipid membrane studies were used to monitor ion transport by the artifical channel. A modest level of ion selectivity was recorded and chemical oxidation of the in-situ channel abolished ion transport.
