The review presents fluorescence spectroscopic studies on the capacities of newly synthesized polypropyleneamine and polyamidoamine fluorescent dendrimers to detect biologically important metal ions. It has been shown that those fluorescent dendrimers whose periphery comprises 1,8-napthalimide fragments are highly sensitive to metal ions which are of great importance to the living organisms.

Keywords: Dendrimers, 1, 8-naphthalimides, complex, metal ions
