In this paper, we describe a facile method for preparation of ZnSe quantum dots (QDs) using an inexpensive and biocompatible source of acetyl cysteine in aqueous media. The structural properties of the ZnSe QDs have been characterized using XRD, FT-IR, and TEM techniques. The optical properties of the as-prepared QDs were found to be size-dependent, due to the strong confinement regime at relatively low refluxing time. Effect of solution pH and refluxing temperature on absorption and emission characteristics of the ZnSe QDs was studied...

A new coumarin based Schiff-base chemosensor-(E)-7-(((8-hydroxyquinolin-2-yl)methylene) amino)-4-methyl-2H-chromen-2-one (H 11 L) was synthesized and evaluated as a colorimetric sensor for Fe(3+) and fluorescence "turn on-off" response of Zn(2+) and Cu(2+) using absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy. Upon treatment with Fe(3+) and Zn(2+), the absorption intensity as well as the fluorescence emission intensity increases drastically compared to other common alkali, alkaline earth and transition metal ions, with a distinct color change which provide naked eye detection...

Glyoxal, a reactive α-oxoaldehyde, increases in diabetic condition and reacts with proteins to form advanced glycation end products (AGEs) following Maillard-like reaction. Considering the significance of protein modification by glyoxal-derived AGEs, we investigated the in vitro effect of glyoxal (200 μM) on the monomeric heme protein myoglobin (Mb) (100 μM) after incubation for one week at 25 °C. Glyoxal-treated Mb exhibited increased absorbance around the Soret region, decreased α-helicity and thermal stability compared to control Mb...

A C 3-symmetric triphenylbenzene based photoluminescent compound, 1,3,5-tris(4'-(N-methylamino)phenyl) benzene ([NHMe]3TAPB), has been synthesized by mono-N-methylation of 1,3,5-tris(4'-aminophenyl) benzene (TAPB) and structurally characterized. [NHMe]3TAPB acts as a selective fluorescent sensor for picric acid (PA) with a detection limit as low as 2.25 ppm at a signal to noise ratio of 3. Other related analytes (i.e. TNT, DNT and DNB) show very little effect on the fluorescence intensity of [NHMe]3TAPB. The selectivity is triggered by proton transfer from picric acid to the fluorophore and ground-state complex formation between the protonated fluorophore and picrate anion through hydrogen bonding interactions...

A simple and sensitive spectrofluorimetric method has been developed and validated for determination of oseltamivir phosphate (OSP). The proposed method is based on condensation reaction of the primary amino group of OSP with ninhydrin and phenylacetaldehyde in buffered medium (pH 6.5). The formed yellow fluorescent product exhibits excitation and emission maxima at 390 and 460 nm, respectively. The selectivity improvement of our proposed method is based on the water insolubility of the oseltamivir carboxylic acid (OSC) the active metabolite of OSP, which contains the same primary amino group as OSP but cannot, condensed with ninhydrin and phenylacetaldehyde reagents...

Derivatives of a new heterocyclic system, pyrimido[5,4-e]thiazolo[3,2-a]pyrimidine 3, were prepared by sequential treatment of ethyl 4-chloro-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine-5-carboxylate 1 with 4,5-dihydrothiazol-2-amine 2 and various secondary amines. Single crystal X-ray analysis confirmed the structure of the regioisomer 3. The photophysical characterization of these new compounds was performed by UV/VIS absorption and fluorescence emission spectroscopy. Out of six derivatives studied, only four products 4a-d showed relatively strong fluorescence intensity...

ZnO quantum dots (QDs) based molecularly imprinting polymer (MIP)-coated composite was described for specific detection of the dimethoate (DM) as a template. The MIP was synthesized by simple self-assembly of 3-aminopropyl triethoxysilane (APTES) monomers and tetraethyl ortho-silicate as cross linking agent in the presence of template molecules. The used imprinting course can improve the tendency of the prepared QDs toward the DM template molecules. The MIP-coated ZnO QDs showed a strong fluorescence emission which undergoes a quenching effect in the presence of DM...

The present study was undertaken to design the novel liposomal drug formulation containing doxorubicin and europium coordination complexes. It was shown that co-encapsulation of the drugs facilitates the partitioning and permeation of lanthanides into the lipid bilayer. The obtained results suggest that new drug platform may have potential application in the design of novel antitumor agents.

Four accurate, sensitive and reliable stability indicating chemometric methods were developed for the quantitative determination of Agomelatine (AGM) whether in pure form or in pharmaceutical formulations. Two supervised learning machines' methods; linear artificial neural networks (PC-linANN) preceded by principle component analysis and linear support vector regression (linSVR), were compared with two principle component based methods; principle component regression (PCR) as well as partial least squares (PLS) for the spectrofluorimetric determination of AGM and its degradants...

A novel thiazole based carbaldehyde bearing benzimidazole fluorophore as the receptor unit for F (-) anion was prepared by multi steps synthesis. Density functional theory was used to understand the structural and electronic properties the receptor. The anion sensing activities of receptor 4 were studied for various anions in acetonitrile solvent. The receptor showed fluorescence enhancement in the presence of fluoride anion due to intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) mechanism. No significant changes were observed upon addition of less basic anions such as OAc(-), Cl(-), Br(-), I(-), HSO4(-)...

A novel series of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) mononuclear complexes have been synthesized involving a potentially tetradentate Schiff base ligand, which was obtained by condensation of 2-aminophenol with 2,5-thiophene-dicarboxaldehyde. The complexes were synthesized via reflux reaction of methanolic solution of the appropriate Schiff base ligand with one equivalent of corresponding metal acetate salt. Based on different techniques including micro analysis, FT-IR, NMR, UV-Vis, ESR, ESI-mass and conductivity measurements, four-coordinated geometry was assigned for all complexes...

This paper presents the results of stationary fluorescence spectroscopy and time-resolved spectroscopy analyses of two 1,3,4-thiadiazole analogues, i.e. 4-(5-methyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)benzene-1,3-diol (C1) and 4-(5-heptyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)benzene-1,3-diol (C7) in an aqueous medium containing different concentrations of hydrogen ions. An interesting dual florescence effect was observed when both compounds were dissolved in aqueous solutions at pH below 7 for C1 and 7.5 for C7. In turn, for C1 and C7 dissolved in water at pH higher than the physiological value (mentioned above), single fluorescence was only noted...

An easily available novel fluorescent probe based on rhodamine 6G-thiourea conjugate (RGTU) has been synthesized. Upon mixed with Hg(2+) in CH3CN-H2O (1:9, v/v), the dramatic enhancement of fluorescence intensity as well as the color change of the solution were observed. The presence of common coexisting alkali, alkaline earth, and transition metal ions showed small or no interference with the detection of Hg(2+). The Job's plot and (1)H NMR spectra indicated that Hg(2+) induced spirolactam open to form 1:1 complex between RGTU and Hg(2+)...
