The detection and speciation analysis of metal-ion is very important for environmental monitoring. A novel electrochemical biosensor for Nickel(II) detection based on a DNAzyme-CdSe nanocomposite was developed. We firstly hybridized with capture probe (DNA1) and sequentially with DNA (DNA2) on the gold electrode. Then CdSe QDs were incorporated the specific(More)
A novel strategy for the enhancement of electrochemiluminescence (ECL) was developed by combining CdSe quantum dots (QDs) with graphene oxide-chitosan (GO-CHIT). The ECL sensor fabricated with CdSe QDs/GO-CHIT composite exhibited high ECL intensity, good biocompatibility and long-term stability, and was used to detect of cytochrome C (Cyt C). The results(More)
A novel sulfur-terminal Zn(II) complex Zn(S)(2)L (L = N-hexyl-3-{2-[4-(2,2':6',2''-terpyridin-4'-yl)phenyl] ethenyl}carbazole) was obtained by a facile solvothermal process. The unique feature in this new reaction design is the use of ZnS nanocrystals as a precursor and bulky chromophoric L as an ancillary ligand. The versatility of the two terminal sulfur(More)
Here we have designed and synthesized a novel analogous cis-platinum complex (TDPt) with strong two-photon absorption properties and higher stability upon laser irradiation. Interestingly, a higher cytotoxicity against three types of cancer cells compared to that of commercial cis-platinum was observed. The initial confocal micrographs showed that lysosomes(More)
The monodisperse silver nanoparticles were synthesized by one-step reduction of silver ions in the alkaline subphase beneath vitamin E (VE) Langmuir monolayers. The monolayers and silver nanocomposite LB films were characterized by surface pressure-area (pi-A) isotherms, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-vis),(More)
Two bis-β-diketones, RCOCH(2)CO-EPTZ-COCH(2)COR (EPTZ = 10-ethylphenothiazine; R = C(6)H(5) for H(2)L(1) and CF(3) for H(2)L(2)) and their cyclic dinuclear Zn(II), Cd(II), Ni(II), Mn(II), Cu(II), Co(II) complexes have been synthesized and fully characterized. Their crystal structures were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Their(More)
The reactivity of tyrosinase adsorbed on nanogold bound with 4,4'-bis(methanethiol)biphenyl monolayer self-assembled on a gold disk with catechol in a dipolar aprotic solvent, acetonitrile (AN), was studied by cyclic voltammetric and amperometric methods. Tyrosinase exhibited characteristics of a Michaelis-Menten kinetic mechanism. The tyrosinase attached(More)
The synthesis, structure, and single- and two-photon spectroscopic properties of a series of pyrimidine-based (bent-shaped) molecules are reported. All these stable heterocyclic compounds are fully characterized, and exhibit intense single- and two-photon excited fluorescence (SPEF and TPEF) over a wide spectral range from blue to red, with the spectral(More)
