A latent fluorophore (1) was rationally designed to give rise to strong fluorescence through a selective gold ion-mediated hydroarylation reaction by a catalytic amount of the gold(III) ion. It is a highly selective and sensitive fluorescence turn-on probe for gold(III) ions and is operative even in protic solvents.
