The invention relates to a dual emission fluorescent compound comprising a chromophore suitable for exhibiting an emission at a first wavelength from an excited state; wherein the compound further comprises one or more groups suitable for inducing a structural rearrangement in the molecule on formation of the excited state, wherein the structural rearrangement stabilises at least a second electromagnetic emission at a second wavelength, such that dual emission is observable at room temperature. Such dual emission allows for the super sensitive ratiometric quantification of analytes.
