ABSTRACT A novel fluorescence chemical sensor for the highly sensitive and selective determination of Co(2+) ions in aqueous solutions is prepared. The cobalt sensing system was prepared by incorporating 7-[(5-chloro-8-hydroxy-7-quinolinyl)methyl]-5,6,7,8,9,10-hexahydro-2H-1,13,4,7,10-benzodioxatriazacyclopentadecine-3,11(4H,12H)-dione (L) as a neutral cobalt-selective fluoroionophore in the plasticized PVC membrane containing sodium tetraphenylborate as a liphophilic anionic additive. The response of the sensor is based on the strong selective fluorescence quenching of L by Co(2+) ions. At a pH 5.0, the proposed sensor displays a calibration curve over a wide concentration range of 5.0 x 10(-7) to 2.0 x 10(-2)M with a relatively fast response time of less than 5 min. In addition to high stability and reproducibility, the sensor shows a unique selectivity towards Co(2+) ion with respect to common coexisting cations. The proposed fluorescence optode was successfully applied to the determination of cobalt content of vitamin B12 ampoule, cobalt cake, cobalt alloy and tap water samples.

    ABSTRACT: A highly selective optical sensor was developed for the Hg(2+) determination by chemical immobilization of 2-[(2-sulfanylphenyl)ethanimidoyl]phenol (L), on an agarose membrane. Spectrophotometric studies of complex formation between the Schiff's base ligand L and Hg(2+), Sr(2+), Mn(2+), Cu(2+), Al(3+), Cd(2+), Zn(2+), Co(2+) and Ag(+) metal ions in methanol solution indicated a substantially larger stability constant for the mercury ion complex. Consequently, the Schiff's base L was used as an appropriate ionophore for the preparation of a selective Hg(2+) optical sensor, by its immobilization on a transparent agarose film. A distinct color change, from yellow to green-blue, was observed by contacting the sensing membrane with Hg(2+) ions at pH 4.5. The effects of pH, ionophore concentration, ionic strength and reaction time on the immobilization of L were studied. A linear relationship was observed between the membrane absorbance at 650 nm and Hg(2+) concentrations in a range from 1×10(-2) to 1×10(-5) mol L(-1) with a detection limit (3σ) of 1×10(-6) mol L(-1). No significant interference from 100 times concentrations of a number of potentially interfering ions was detected for the mercury ion determination. The optical sensor was successfully applied to the determination of mercury in amalgam alloy and spiked water samples.

    ABSTRACT: A gold nanoparticle (AuNPs)-based simple and fast colorimetric sensor for selective detecting of Pb(II) in aqueous solution has been developed. Monodisperse AuNPs (approx. 2.0 nm diameter) has been prepared facilely and further modified with an alkanethiol-bearing monoazacrown ether terminus. These AuNPs are shown to selectively sense Pb(2+) through color change, which is visually discernible by an appearance of the surface plasmon band (SPB) at 520 nm. The recognition mechanism is attributed to the unique structure of the monoazacrown ether attached to AuNPs and metal sandwich coordination between two azacrown ether moieties that are attached to separate nanoparticles. This inter-particle cross-linking results in an aggregation and apparent color change from brown to purple. Additionally, TEM experiments support the optical absorption data proving the aggregation between azacrown ether-capped gold nanoparticles. This AuNP-based colorimetric assay is a facile and robust method and allows fast detection of Pb(2+) at ambient temperatures. More importantly, the developed technique does not utilize enzymatic reactions, light-sensitive dye molecules, lengthy protocols or sophisticated instrumentation.

    ABSTRACT: For the first time, a highly sensitive and selective fluorimetric optode membrane sensor for determination of trace amounts of Tb(III) ions was prepared. The Tb(III) sensing system was prepared by incorporating 2-(5-(dimethylamino) naphthalen-1-ylsulfonyl)-N-phenylhydrazinecarbothioamide (L) as a neutral Tb(III)-selective fluoroionophore, in the plasticized PVC membrane containing sodium tetraphenyl borate as a liphophilic anionic additive. The response of the sensor is based on the strong fluorescence quenching of L by Tb(III) ions. At pH 4.7, the proposed sensor displays a calibration curve over a wide concentration range of 1.0 × 10−2 to 1.0 × 10−8 M, with a relatively fast response time of less than 1 min, high stability, high reproducibility and a relatively long working lifetime. The sensor shows a good selectivity towards Tb(III) ion respect to all lanthanide and common coexisting cations. The proposed fluorescence optode was applied successfully to determination of Tb(III) ion in water and phosphate rock samples.
