With a low optical background, high loading capacity, and good biocompatibility, hydrogels are ideal materials for immobilization of biopolymers to develop optical biosensors. We recently immobilized mercury and lead binding DNAs within a monolithic gel and demonstrated ultrasensitive visual detection of these heavy metals. The high sensitivity was(More)
Analysis of the photomixtures resulting from irradiation of aqueous solutions of linoleic acid sensitized by tiaprofenic acid (TPA) or its major photoproduct (DTPA) by HPLC has shown the formation of all the four possible conjugated dienic hydroperoxides. According to laser flash photolysis experiments the rate constants for hydrogen abstraction from(More)
The present study was oriented to prepare new scintillating anion-exchange resins for measurement of (99)TcO(4)(-) in natural waters. The organic fluor 2-(1-naphthyl)-5-phenyloxazole was diffused into (chloromethyl)polystyrene resin. Thereafter, a thin layer of poly[[2-(methacryloyloxy)ethyl]trimethylammonium chloride] was grafted from the resin surface by(More)
A careful study of the linoleic acid hydroperoxide (LOOH) profile obtained upon peroxidation of linoleic acid (LA) photosensitized by tiaprofenic acid (TPA) and analogous ketones has been undertaken to distinguish between type-I and type-II photoperoxidation mechanisms. 1,4-Cyclohexadiene and 1,2-dimethylcyclohexa-2,5-dienecarboxylic acid (CHDCA) have also(More)
Many biosensors have been developed to detect Hg(2+) using thymine-rich DNA. While sensor response to various cations is often studied to demonstrate selectivity, the effect of anions has been largely overlooked. Anions may compete with DNA for metal binding and thus produce a false negative result. Anions cannot be added alone; the cation part of a salt(More)
