- A facile fluorescent method was developed to quantitatively monitor the hydrolysis kinetics of nonfluorescent esters by using a fluorecent endo-functionalized molecular tube and its recognition ability towards small polar molecules in water. It is possible to determine the apparent rate constants and study the structure–activity relationship.
