Some nickel(II) and zinc(II) complexes of the type [Ni(L)(phen/bipy)]X (1a-6a) and [Zn(L) (phen/bipy)]X (1b-6b) (where L = 2-{(E)-[(4-trimethylsilylethynylphenyl)imino]methyl}-4-(4-nitro phenylethynyl)phenol; phen = 1, 10-phenanthroline, bipy = 2, 2´-bipyridine; X = ClO4(-), BF4(-), PF6(-)) have been prepared and characterized on the basis of elemental analyses, FTIR, (1)H NMR and mass spectral studies. The molecular structure of L was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. The electrochemical behaviour of the Ni(II) complexes indicate that the phen complexes appears at more positive potential as compared to those for bipy complexes, as a consequence of its strong π-acidic character...

In this paper, interaction of Schiff base and its metal complexes carrying naphthalene ring in the structure with bovine serum albumin (BSA) were investigated using UV-vis absorption, fluorescence spectroscopies and molecular docking methods. The effect on the binding mechanism and properties of these compounds containing metal-free, iron and copper ions were also investigated. The fluorescence spectroscopy results showed that fluorescence intensity of BSA in the presence of different concentration of ligands was decreased through a static quenching mechanism...

High oxygen permeable [poly(TMSP)] nanofibers incorporating porphyrin macrocycle as luminescence indicators were prepared by electrospinning technique. The porphyrins involves were modified by i) introducing phenylacetylide substituents on the para position of the phenyl moieties and ii) varying the metal centers [Pt(II) or Pd(II)] of the meso-tetrakisphenylporphyrins. A set of nanofibers; (Pt-TPP)NF, (Pd-TPP)NF, (Pt-TPA)NF and (Pd-TPA)NF were obtained to study their structure-activity relationship toward oxygen...

It was studied that making conditions of a micro-volume fluorescence capillary biosensor for determining pyruvate (PA) and lactate (LA). The biosensor made under the optimized conditions could be used for sequential quantifications of LA in the range 0.10-1.2 mM and PA in 4-120 μM, and its recovery for PA and LA was in a satisfactory range 97-106% for human serum samples, with detection limits of 0.023 mM for LA (RSD < 1.89%, n = 11) and 0.87 μM for PA (RSD < 1.70%, n = 11). The new assay possessed these advantages that the LDH immobilizing on capillary realized the reuse of expensive enzyme in fluorospectrophotometry, and the consumption of serum samples or chemical reagents decreased to 9 μL in per assay, and the analytes no needed to preseparation, and it also are accurate and reliable...

A new fluorescent probe based on "protection-deprotection" sequence and the excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) effect was designed and synthesized. The probe responds rapidly and high selectively toward hydrazine at room temperature, and exhibits a low detection limit of 0.016 μM (0.512 ppb), which is well below the safety level (10 ppb) as regulated by EPA. Moreover, it can be applied for the imaging of hydrazine in living cells.

Here a simple and sensitive fluorescent assay for detecting Cefixime based on inner filter effect (IFE) has been proven, which is conceptually different from the previously reported CEF fluorescent assays. In this sensing platform, fluorescent carbon dots (CDs) were prepared by one-pot synthesis and was directly used as fluorophore in IFE. The method is based on the complexation reaction between cefixime and palladium ion in the presence of acidic buffer solution (pH 4). The Pd(II)-CEFcomplex was capable of functioning as a powerful absorber in IFE to influence the excitation of fluorophore (CDs)...

Novel aminophthalimide derivatives were synthesized starting from (3aR,7aS)-2-(2-hydroxypropyl)-3a,4,7,7a-tetrahydro-1H-isoindole-1,3(2H)-dione (9) , and solvent effects on the photo-physical properties of these newly synthesized aminophthalimide derivatives (compounds 14 and 15) were investigated using UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy, steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence measurements. Both absorption and fluorescence spectra exhibited bathochromic shift with the increased polarity of the solvents for both molecules...

Reduction of aromatic azides to amines is an important property of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) which is useful in fluorescence microscopy and H2S probing in cells. The aim of this work is to study the substituent effect on the absorption and emission spectra of 2-(2'-aminophenyl)benzothiazole (APBT) in order to design APBT derivatives for the use of H2S detection. Absorption and emission spectra of APBT derivatives in aqueous environment were calculated using density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent DFT (TD-DFT) at B3LYP/6-311+G(d,p) level...

This study reports the development of functional optical limiting materials composed of pristine graphene (GQDs), nitrogen-doped (NGQDs) and sulfur-nitrogen co-doped (SNGQDs) graphene quantum dots covalently linked to mono-amino substituted zinc phthalocyanine (Pc). Open aperture Z-scan technique was employed to monitor the behaviour of the conjugates under tightly focussed Gaussian laser beam using a mode-locked Nd:YAG laser delivering 10 nanosecond (FWHM) pulses at 532 nm wavelength. Nonlinear effect due to reverse saturable absorption was the predominant mechanism; and was attributed to the moderately enhanced triplet population...

A new Fe3O4@SiO2 fluorescent probe for detection of Hg(2+) in aqueous solutions was introduced based on a simple ligand. The prepared sample was characterized by using TEM, EDX, FT-IR, VSM, and TGA/DTA. The sensitivity of the probe toward Hg(2+) and its selectivity in presence of other cations were proven by using fluorescence spectroscopy. The detection limit of the prepared chemosensor is 8.1 nM. The magnetic property of the prepared nanocomposite enables its separation by an external magnet. The simple structure of the employed ligand results in simple preparation procedure and therefore could be an applicable material for detection of Hg(2+) in industrial, environmental, and biological samples...

Natural organic matter is an important component of the aquatic environments, which has attracted wide attention to its influence of interaction with other pollutants. The present work aimed to investigate its fluorescence quenching (FQ) by coated metallic silver particles (AgNPs). In this work, using fluorescence spectroscopy in conjunction with UV-Vis spectroscopy and dynamic light scattering, the effect of coated AgNPs on fluorescence quenching intensity (FQI) of humic acid (HA) was assessed. In addition, the influence of electrolytes (NaCl, NaNO3 and CaNO3) in the FQI was observed...

Arsenic (As(3+)) is a hazardous and ubiquitous element; hence the quantitative detection of arsenic in various kinds of environmental sample is an important issue. Herein, we reported L-cysteine capped CdTe Quantum dot based optical sensor for the fluorometric detection of arsenic (III) in real water sample. The method is based on the fluorescence quenching of QDs with the addition of arsenic solution that caused the reduction in fluorescence intensity due to strong interaction between As(3+) and L-cysteine to form As(Cys)3...
