Graphene oxide is an efficient fluorescence quencher for various organic dyes. Herein the fluorescence quenching of graphene oxide has been carried out on a naphthalimide dye as a fluorescent probe model. The interaction between naphthalimide dye and graphene oxide was studied by UV-Vis and fluorescence spectroscopic techniques. The results indicated that graphene is a very efficient quencher for naphthalimide molecule. The Stern-Volmer analysis revealed that the remarkable quenching of graphene was based on a combined static and dynamic quenching mechanism and went through an energy transfer process...

Two oxidized forms of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), oxidized (Ox-LDL) and minimally modified (MM-LDL), and the immune complexes (LDL-ICs) that they form with their corresponding antibodies, play a major role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Recently, we reported that the heptapeptide KP6 (Lys-Trp-Tyr-Lys-Asp-Gly-Asp) coupled through its ε-amino group present on the N-terminal Lys to fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)- (FITC)KP6- binds specifically to Ox-LDL and MM-LDL, but not to native LDL. Here, to develop a novel method for measuring the levels of oxidatively modified LDL in blood, using (FITC)KP6, we analyzed the latter's binding with MM-LDL-IC and Ox-LDL-IC...

Structural transition among various forms of proteins involves subtle interplay between structure and dynamics and is crucial in human diseases. Red edge excitation shift (REES) represents a suitable approach to explore the environmental organization and dynamics surrounding tryptophan residues in proteins. Although REES from tryptophan residues has been reported for native, molten globule and denatured states of proteins, such data on the amyloid form of proteins is lacking. κ-casein is one of the most important constituents of casein micelles in milk and has a tendency to form amyloid fibril...

A systematic structure-photoproperties relationship study of the interactions of porphyrin-fullerene dyads with molecular oxygen was conducted on a set of three porphyrin-fullerene dyads, as this approach of related applications - oxygen sensitivity and photo-induced singlet oxygen generation - of such dyads remained to be endeavoured. To promote energy transfers between the porphyrin and fullerene units and limit undesired charge separation, a particular attention was devoted to the choice of the solvents for the photoproperties determination...

Multivariate curve resolution alternating least square (MCR-ALS) analysis is the most commonly used curve resolution technique. The MCR-ALS model is fitted using the alternate least square (ALS) algorithm that needs initialisation of either contribution profiles or spectral profiles of each of the factor. The contribution profiles can be initialised using the evolve factor analysis; however, in principle, this approach requires that data must belong to the sequential process. The initialisation of the spectral profiles are usually carried out using the pure variable approach such as SIMPLISMA algorithm, this approach demands that each factor must have the pure variables in the data sets...

The commercially available natural organic dye, carminic acid (CA), an anthraquinone derivative bearing hydroxyl and carboxyl groups as recognition sites was found to be a colorimetric probe for Pb(2+) in perfect aqueous solution under neutral conditions with specific selectivity and high sensitivity. Upon addition of Pb(2+), the absorption maximum of CA showed a large red shift, and the resulted color change from red to purple could be easily identified even by the naked eye. The chemical stoichiometric ratio between CA and Pb(2+) was determined to be 1:2 through Job plot, Pb(2+) titration, and kinetic experiments...

Clenbuterol (CLB), a member of β-agonist family, has now been a serious threat to human health due to its illegal usage in the animal feed. In this paper, we designed a fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) system consisting of carbon dots (C-dots) and gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) for recovered fluorescence detecting of CLB. In the presence of CLB, CLB molecules can interact with AuNPs via Au-N bonds, preventing the interaction of C-dots and AuNPs, which induced the recover of the fluorescent intensity...

Herein, we report photophysical properties of a novel and biologically active 3(2H)-pyridazinone derivative 5-(4-chloro-2-hydoxy-phenyl)-2-phenyl-2H-pyridazin-3-one [CHP] molecule using solvatochromic approaches. Absorption and fluorescence spectra of CHP molecule have been measured at room temperature in various solvents of different polarities. From this, it is observed that the positions, intensities and shapes of the absorption and emission bands are usually modified. Experimentally, the ground and excited state dipole moments are estimated using solvatochromic shift method which involves Lippert's, Bakshiev's and Kawski-Chamma-Viallet's equations...

A new rhodamine-based fluorescent chemosensor (1) has been designed and synthesized by linking rhodamine 6G hydrazide with N-methylisatin via an imine linkage. The receptor can selectively recognize and sense Pb(2+), Hg(2+) and Cd(2+) by showing different fluorescence characteristics. In ethanol/HEPES buffer medium, the addition of Cd(2+) caused a yellowish-green fluorescence, while the presence of Pb(2+) or Hg(2+) gave rise to an orange fluorescence. Additionally, the sensor shows an irreversible fluorescence response to Pb(2+) and reversible fluorescence responses to Hg(2+) and Cd(2+)...
