An inorganic water soluble Ni(II) complex offers a molecular logic gate for the naked-eye detection of pyrophosphate versus thiol derivatives. Pyrocathecol coordinated to nickel performs a thiol-michael addition click reaction in the presence of thiol derivativs whereas pyrophosphate allows a displacement of the indicator PCV leading to an indicator displacement assay.
