Abstract. The synthesis of sorption materials for retention and/or preconcentration of species of clinical and environmental interest, such as metal ions, is an important area of contemporary research. We report herein the synthesis of different solid supports of anthracene-phosphine sulfide for Cu(II) and Pb(II) preconcentration. Sensing properties of these materials were also evaluated using a flowthrough optosensing approach.
