A novel ratiometric fluorescent Hg(2+) detecting system was rationally developed based on the typical excited state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) characteristic of the latent fluorophore, 2-(1-(p-tolyl)-1H-phenanthro[9,10-d]imidazol-2-yl)phenol (Pol) and the Hg(2+)-mediated cleavage of the vinyl group. The probe responds selectively to Hg(2+) over(More)
Carbon nanodots (C-dots) show great potential as an important material for biochemical sensing, energy conversion, photocatalysis, and optoelectronics because of their water solubility, chemical inertness, low toxicity, and photo- and electronic properties. Numerous methods have been proposed for the preparation of C-dots. However, complex procedures and(More)
A novel probe based on the fluorescence off-on strategy was prepared to optically detect hydrogen sulfide (H2S) via an excited state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) mechanism. The probe shows high sensitivity and excellent selectivity to H2S. It also displays a large Stokes shift (∼140 nm) and a remarkable quantum yield enhancement (Ф=0.412) after(More)
We demonstrate that photoluminescent Si-dots exhibit intrinsic peroxidase-like activity, and can catalyze the oxidization of 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) by H2O2, and produce a color change. This strategy can be used to detect glucose with high sensitivity and selectivity.
Here we report a novel label-free fluorescent sensor for ultrasensitive detection of protamine and heparin based on the high quenching ability of gold nanoparticles to the fluorescence of fluorescein. The fluorescence was significantly quenched when fluorescein molecules were attached to the surface of gold nanoparticles by electrostatic interaction. Upon(More)
