A tailor-made nucleoside-based colourimetric probe of formic acid.

Abstract

A ratiometric, specific probe of formic acid has been developed. It is based on intermolecular nucleobase-pairing of inosine-capped plasmonic nanoparticles to form nucleoside channels, which are destabilised by the analyte.
