The objectives include synthesis of cadidate fluorescent probe molecules for cholinesterase enzymes and evaluation of the feasibility of developing a new analytical method for insecticides in water. Results with Dursban, Thioden and certain other insecticides are in the range of 0.0000001M. Insecticides which do not compete with, or displace the probe from its complex are not detected. Experimental parameters for design and synthesis of optimum probe molecules were developed.
