Sensing of fluoride ions in aqueous media using a luminescent coordination polymer and liposome composite.

Abstract

The synthesis of a luminescent coordination polymer (Tb-BTC) within the confined environment of a liposome allowed for the anisotropic growth of nanosized Tb-BTC crystals. Consequently, the resulting composite Tb-BTC@Lipo exhibited a higher fluorescence sensitivity to fluoride anions in aqueous media compared to the independent Tb-BTC in bulk.
