A novel tetraphenylethene-based fluorescence (FL) chemosensor exhibits nonlinear turn-on FL switching though cooperative binding of l-tartarate, where its convergent binding to form cyclic substructures is responsible for the FL increase. This binding scheme achieves selective detection of dicarboxylates over monocarboxylates, thus is potentially applicable to the preliminary screening for metabolic disorders.
