Single crystal X-ray structurally characterized several naphthalene based aldazine derivatives have been established as efficient colorimetric and fluorescence probes for selective ratiometric recognition of traces zinc acetate. Moreover, the probes are capable for in-vitro tracking of zinc acetate in endophytic bacteria within the rice root tissue. The 10 probes are also useful to image zinc acetate in human breast cancer cells (MCF7) with normal as well as fluorescence microscopes. Density functional theoretical studies are in close agreement to the experimental findings.
