Fluorescent organic nanoparticles of Biginelli-based molecules: recognition of Hg2+ and Cl- in an aqueous medium.


Biginelli-based molecules (1-3) have been synthesized and developed as a new class of fluorescent organic nanoparticle-based chemosensors. Chemosensor 2 has shown excellent selectivity and sensitivity for detection of Hg(2+) in an aqueous medium. It can detect Hg(2+) up to 1 nM, and the resultant 2Hg(2+) complex can detect Cl(-) ions (micromolar level) in… (More)
