We describe fluorescent probes to detect formaldehyde (FA) in aqueous solutions and cells. The probes rapidly respond to FA in aqueous solutions and have great selectivity toward FA over other biologically relevant analytes. The results of cell studies reveal that probe 1 can be utilized to monitor endogenous and exogenous FA in live cells.
