Hence, in this investigation we report microwave assisted preparation and multi sensing application of CQDs. The microwave derived CQDs are characterized by Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) experiment and Fourier Infrared spectra (FTIR) to investigate the size distribution and chemical purity respectively. Fluorescent emission spectra recorded at varying pH shows varying fluorescence emission intensities...

Protein rotation in viscous environments can be measured by fluorescence depletion anisotropy (FDA) which combines long lifetimes of chromophore triplet states with the sensitivity of fluorescence excitation and detection. FDA achieves sensitivity well beyond that attainable by the more common technique of time-resolved phosphorescence anisotropy (TPA). We have now combined benefits of both time-domain and frequency-domain FDA into a single continuous technique (CFDA). Intensity and polarization of a single laser beam are modulated continuously according to a complex, repeating waveform...

Tetra(aryl)tetracyanoporphyrazines are the promising group of dyes for photodynamic therapy of tumors with unique combination of photosensitizer properties and sensitivity of fluorescence parameters to the environment viscosity. However, in vivo application of such hydrophobic photosensitizers requires using of drug carriers ensuring efficient delivery to the tumor site. The present study is focused on obtaining liposomes loaded with tetrakis(4-benzyloxyphenyl)tetracyanoporphyrazine and examining their properties depending on lipid composition...

Caffeic acid (CA), a familiar color stabilizing reagent, has aroused general concern due to its uncontrolled addition, and thus the detection of CA is increasingly important. In our report, the bright carbon dots (CDs) were prepared via hydrothermal treatment with urea and citric acid act as raw material and their characteristics were discussed through X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and so on. Impressively, the strong emission of the as-prepared CDs (Quantum Yield: 24.3%) decreased sharply upon a full reaction with the added CA...

Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) is a powerful tool to quantitatively study the diffusion of fluorescently labeled molecules. It allows in principle important questions of macromolecular transport and supramolecular aggregation in living cells to be addressed. However, the crowded environment inside the cells slows diffusion and limits the reservoir of labeled molecules, causing artifacts that arise especially from photobleaching and limit the utility of FCS in these applications. We present a method to compute the time correlation function from weighted photon arrival times, which compensates computationally during the data analysis for the effect of photobleaching...

To describe an innovative sentinel lymph node (SLN) guidance approach using a radionuclide tracer, 3D augmented reality-guided imaging, and near infrared (NIR) fluorescence over-lay imaging with hand-held probes to optimize accuracy, efficiency, and precise navigation for sentinel node (SN) localization in head and neck cancer. In a cT1N0M0 squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue, pre-operative radionuclide lymphoscintigraphy was performed with a sentinel node-specific radiolabeled tracer. Intraoperatively, a 3D hand-held augmented reality (AR) scanning SPECT probe assessed concordance of the SN with pre-operative SPECT-CT images...

Eu3+ doped and Dy3+ codoped yttrium oxide (Y2O3) phosphors have been prepared using solid-state reaction technique (SSR). The prepared phosphors were characterized by X-ray diffractometer (XRD), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier transforms infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) techniques. Photoluminescence (PL) and Thermoluminescence (TL) properties were studied in detail.

Micelles are of increasing importance as versatile carriers for hydrophobic substances and nanoprobes for a wide range of pharmaceutical, diagnostic, medical, and therapeutic applications. A key parameter indicating the formation and stability of micelles is the critical micelle concentration (CMC). In this respect, we determined the CMC of common anionic, cationic, and non-ionic surfactants fluorometrically using different fluorescent probes and fluorescence parameters for signal detection and compared the results with conductometric and surface tension measurements...

In the paper, hydrothermal carbon spheres (HTCs) are functionalized by the 3-aminobenzeneboronic acid (3-APBA) as a fluorescence sensor. The modification carbon spheres (3-APBA-HTCs) have shown excellent selectivity and sensitivity for efficient determination of L-tryptophan (L-Trp). The fluorescence sensor can selectively achieve the "On-Off" switchable functionality for L-Trp at an extremely low detection limit of 0.50 × 10- 5 mol/L.

An efficient and highly selective pyrene-thiophene conjugate has been reported as a dual sensor for Hg2+ and cysteamine (an important drug for genetic disorder). The sensor displays a turn-on fluorescence response towards Hg2+ in a 2:1 stoichiometric ratio via excimer formation with a detection limit as low as of 30.6 nM. The excimer emission upon binding with Hg2+ has been rationalized by experimental as well as theoritical studies. Moreover, the [probe-Hg2+] adduct functions as an efficient sensor for cysteamine...

Experimental studies in the aqueous solution are crucial for the detection of metal cations in environmental and biological media. Polymer materials allow to work in aqueous media for fluorescent substances which are insoluble in water. Fluorescence sensor studies of the phenanthroimidazole imine compound (PI) synthesized previously by our group were performed in the polymer medium and the selective response to Fe (III) cation was obtained. The resulting sensor exhibited a selective fluorescence quenching effect to Fe (III)...

The present work describes the photophysical behavior of a saturated fatty acid (palmitic acid) containing N-acetylated dansylamide derivative (DAN-PA) into biologically important organized assembly such as β-cyclodextrin (β-CD), Tween-20 (T-20) and 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) lipid bilayer membrane. The results were compared by using another N-acetylated dansylamide conjugate having a short hydrophobic tail, DAN-ACYL. Long hydrophobic tail (saturated fatty acid) containing dansylamide conjugate (DAN-PA) shows more efficient binding interactions with the β-CD as compared to the short tail containing dansylamide derivative (DAN-ACYL)...

Single molecule detection and tracking provides at times the only possible method to observe the interactions of low numbers of biomolecules, inlcuding DNA, receptors and signal mediating proteins in living systems. However, most existing imaging methods do not enable both high sensitivity and non-invasive imaging of large specimens. In this study we report a new setup for selective plane illumination microscopy (SPIM), which enables fast imaging and single molecule tracking with the resolution of confocal microscopy and the optical penetration beyond 300 μm...

Fluorescence investigations on interactions between 7,8-benzo-4-azidomethyl coumarin (7BAMC) and quenchers ortho-phenylenediamine (OPD) and para-phenylenediamines (PPD) in binary solvent mixtures (THF + water) have been reported. UV-absorption study indicated a weak hydrophobic interaction between 7BAMC and the para isomer. NMR spectral studies indicated the presence of an interaction between 7BAMC and PPD. Magnitudes of the parameters associated with FRET, showed the presence of interactions between 7BAMC and PPD quencher is more predominant than OPD...

Photophysical properties of BODIPY dyes containing acetyl acetone and benzoyl acetone BF2 unit as an electron accepting substituent at beta position linked via double bond have been investigated using a wide range of solvents of different polarities. The substitution effect at beta position of the BODIPY dyes on their absorption, emission and quantum yield of fluorescence have been the aim of present study. For the synthesized BODIPY dyes fluorescence quantum yields and lifetimes show very sharp decrease with an increase in the solvent polarity, suggesting the involvement of highly polar ICT state de-excitation mechanism along with the local excitation process...

Measurements have been conducted using fluorescence spectroscopy with 350 nm excitation and Stokes shift (SS) spectroscopy (SSS) with 120 nm shift from a total of 99 saliva samples. For classification, principal component analysis (PCA) and linear discriminant analysis (LDA) have been applied on the data sets...
