Keywords Water content Water determination ﬂuorescent and colorimetric molecular sensors seems to Solvatochromic dye Preferential solvation UV–Vis have great meaning. These sensors make possible in situ spectroscopy analysis of water content in organic solvents with high sensitivity and precision and low detection limits. Their applicability in water determination results from the fact Introduction that the addition of water into an organic solvent leads to the changes in intensities of their emission or absorption Determination of water content in organic solvents plays an spectra and/or the spectral shifts of the sensors (Langhals important role in many laboratory and industry applica- 1990; Pinheiro et al. 2006; Cha et al. 2011; Rananaware tions.
