Chemistry professor discovers colour sensor compound for anions

Discovery of a compound that undergoes a colorimetric response to a whole host of different ions. However, the most remarkable facet of the chemistry is that the detecting species is not made directly by the scientist, but because the response spontaneously self-assembles to give a sensor for each specific anion.
