Thiocyanate (SCN(-)) is a small anion byproduct of cyanide metabolism. Several methods have been reported to measure SCN(-) above the micromolar level. However, SCN(-) is derived from many sources such as cigarettes, waste water, food and even car exhaust and its effect is cumulative, which makes it necessary to develop methods for the detection of trace SCN(-). In this paper, a simple and ultrasensitive turn-on fluorescence assay of trace SCN(-) is established based on the fluorescence… CONTINUE READING
