[reaction: see text] A new fluorescent probe, salicylaldehyde rhodamine B hydrazone (1), was synthesized and displayed selective Cu(II)-amplified absorbance and fluorescence emission above 500 nm in neutral buffered media. Upon the addition of Cu(II), the spirolactam ring of 1 was opened and a 1:1 metal-ligand complex was formed. The detection of Cu(II) by(More)
[structure: see text] A new fluorescent probe 3 was synthesized, and it exhibited high selectivity for Fe(III) over other commonly coexistent metal ions in both ethanol and water. Upon the addition of Fe(III), the spirocyclic ring of 3 was opened and a significant enhancement of visible color and fluorescence in the range of 500-600 nm was observed.
A highly selective and sensitive rhodamine-based colorimetric chemosensor (1) for quantification of divalent copper in aqueous solution has been investigated in this work. It was designed using salicylaldehyde hydrazone and rhodamine 6G as copper-chelating and signal-reporting groups, respectively. In environmentally friendly media (50%(v/v) water/ethanol(More)
A new ratiometric and selective fluorescent chemosensor (1) for quantification of zinc ions in aqueous ethanol has been synthesized and investigated in this work. In an environmentally friendly media of 30% (v/v) water/ethanol and 10 mM Tris-HCl neutral buffer (pH 7.03), 1 displayed selective Zn(2+) ratiometric fluorescence response, with a dynamic working(More)
Portable, low-cost and quantitative detection of a broad range of targets at home and in the field has the potential to revolutionize medical diagnostics and environmental monitoring. Despite many years of research, very few such devices are commercially available. Taking advantage of the wide availability and low cost of the pocket-sized personal glucose(More)
An abasic site called dSpacer has been introduced into duplex regions of the 8-17 DNAzyme and adenosine aptamer for label-free fluorescent detection of Pb(2+) and adenosine, respectively. The dSpacer can bind an extrinsic fluorescent compound, 2-amino-5,6,7-trimethyl-1,8-naphthyridine (ATMND), and quench its fluorescence. Addition of Pb(2+) enables the(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the chemical constituents of Salsola collina. METHOD The EtOH extract from the whole plant of S. collina were isolated and purified by column chromatography. These compounds were identified by their physical properties and spectroscopic data. RESULT Eleven compounds were isolated and identified as ferulic acid (1), p-coumaric acid(More)
A new fluorogenic method for the selective and sensitive determination of chromium(VI) in acidic water using rhodamine B hydrazide was developed. This method was based on the oxidation of non-fluorescent rhodamine B hydrazide by potassium dichromate in acidic aqueous conditions to give rhodamine B, which was highly fluorescent, as a product. With the(More)
In this work, two methods with complementary features, catalytic and molecular beacon (CAMB) and label-free fluorescent sensors using an abasic site, have been combined into new label-free CAMB sensors that possess advantages of each method. The label-free method using a dSpacer-containing molecular beacon makes CAMB more cost-effective and less interfering(More)
A series of salicylaldehyde azine derivatives were found to exhibit interesting aggregation-induced emission enhancement (AIEE) characteristics. In good solvent, all these compounds displayed very weak fluorescence, while strong emission was observed when they were placed in poor solvent. Moreover, the AIEE color of these compounds varied from green to red(More)
