Colormetric recognition

Yan Liu, Qin Ouyang, Huanhuan Li, Zhengzhu Zhang, Quansheng Chen
This paper describes a novel ratiometric fluorescence-based sensor for the detection of fluoride ion. Yb(3+), Er(3+), and Tm(3+) codoped NaYF4 upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs), which can emit fluorescence at 546, 657, 758, and 812 nm under the 980 nm single wavelength excitation, were synthesized, amino-modified and applied as the fluorescent signal indicator. The natural chemical curcumin served as specific recognition element and mixed with UCNPs to make a nanosystem. In this nanosystem, the absorption peak of curcumin shows a bathochromic shift when F(-) was added, causing an upconversion fluorescence quenching at 546 and 657 nm through inner filter effects (IFE), whereas the upconversion emission at 758 and 812 nm remained unchanged...

A novel anthrancene-dopamine thioether L compound was designed as fluorescent probe for detecting Hg2+ in living cells sample. L exhibits a good sensitive and selective recognition towards Hg2+ ions in the presence of other important relevant metal ions and amino acids in HEPES solution. The addition of Hg2+ causes a marked enhancement in the fluorescence emission intensity with the detection limit as low as 1.1×10-6 M, combining with obvious colormetric change from colorless to pale brown. Mechanistic studies show that catechol group and sulfur atom in L all participate in the coordination with Hg2+ , though catechol group contributes mainly to chelation-enhanced fluorescence enhancement and sulfur atom to selectivity...
