A coumarin-appended rhodamine derivative was prepared by reacting rhodamine hydrazide and coumarin-3-carboxylic acid, which fluorescence sensing behavior toward Zn2+ against other metal ions was investigated in CH3CN. Significantly, the rodamine-coumarin derivative exhibited highly selective and sensitive recognition toward Zn2+ with a limit of detection… (More)
Denitratation (nitrite produced from nitrate), has the potential applications in wastewater treatment by combining with ANAMMOX process. The occurrence of denitratation has been shown to be effected qualitatively by various parameters in the environment. A more quantitative understanding can be obtained using enrichment cultures in lab-scale experiments,… (More)
Dynamics of vortex clusters is essential for understanding diverse superfluid phenomena. In this paper, we examine the dynamics of vortex quadrupoles in a trapped two-dimensional (2D) Bose-Einstein condensate. We find that the movement of these vortex-clusters fall into three distinct regimes which are fully described by the radial positions of the vortices… (More)
The development of novel selective probes with high sensitivity for the detection of Al(3+) is widely considered an important research goal due to the importance of such probes in medicine, living systems and the environment. Here, we describe a new fluorescent probe, N'-(4-diethylamino-2-hydroxybenzylidene)-2-hydroxybenzohydrazide (1), for Al(3+). Probe 1… (More)
Recently, more and more rhodamine derivatives have been used as fluorophores to construct sensors due to their excellent spectroscopic properties. A rhodamine-based fluorescent and colorimetric Fe(3+) chemosensor 3',6'-bis(ethylamino)-2-acetoxyl-2',7'-dimethyl-spiro[1H-isoindole-1,9'-[9H]xanthen]-3(2H)-one (RAE) was designed and synthesized. Upon the… (More)
In the title compound, C(18)H(26)N(2)O(6)S(2), all bond lengths and angles are normal. The crystal structure is stabilized by inter-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
