The evaluation of the chromaticity of a series of fluorescent Lewis adducts with highly luminescent dithienophospholes enables the unequivocal determination of the strength of Lewis acids. Our method provides a simple, robust, and efficient avenue to discern an exhaustive list of species from across the period table.
