      A pyrrole end-capped bipyridyl ligand 1a incorporating a   chiral
      handle exhibited high solid-state emission when compared to   the
      achiral analogue 1b and to the racemic molecule 1c which
      allowed the design of a reusable fluorescent probe for the
      selective detection of Zn2+ under aqueous conditions.
