Novel hexakisurea and thiourea cyclotriphosphazene compounds (3-7) were synthesized. The structure of all compounds was identified using FT-IR H-1, C-13, and P-31 NMR spectroscopy; MALDI-TOF MS; and elemental analysis. The optical sensor properties for anions of 3-7 were investigated using UV-Vis spectroscopy. It was determined that compounds 6 and 7 are spectrophotometric and naked eye sensors for F- and CN- anions, respectively. Sensor properties of these compounds for anions were investigated using UV-Vis spectroscopy. The stoichiometry of host guest complexes was found to be 1:6.
