ABSTRACT An "ensemble"-based chemodosimeter 1-Cu(II) for cyanide detection is reported. 1-Cu(II) can recognize a cyanide ion over other anionic species to show a marked fluorescence enhancement under aqueous conditions. "Off-on" fluorescence change of 1-Cu(II) is proceeded by addition of cyanide, which induces decomplexation of the Cu(II) ion from nonfluorescent 1 followed by hydrolytic cleavage of the resulted Schiff base to give a strongly fluorescent coumarinaldehyde (2). The selective detection of cyanide with 1-Cu(II) for biological application was also performed in HepG2 cells.

    ABSTRACT: A novel coumarin-indole based chemodosimeter with a simple structure was designed and prepared via a condensation reaction in high yield. The probe exhibited very high selectivity towards cyanide on both fluorescence and UV-vis spectra, which allowed it to quantitatively detect and imaging cyanide ions in organic-aqueous solution by either fluorescence enhancement or colorimetric changes. Confirmed by (1)H NMR and HRMS spectra, the detection mechanism was proved to be related with the Michael addition reaction induced by cyanide ions, which blocked the intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) of the probe. Moreover, the probe was able to be utilized efficiently in a wide pH range (7.5-10) with negligible interference from other anions and a low detection limit of 0.51μM. Application in 5 kinds of natural water source and accurate detection of cyanide in tap water solvent system also indicated the high practical significance of the probe.

    ABSTRACT: A new benzimidazole-based imine linked sensor (1) was synthesized. Sensor 1 exhibits highly selective and sensitive recognition properties to Cu2+. in CH3OH/H2O (1/1, v/v, HEPES 10 mM, pH = 7.0) solution with a 1:1 binding stoichiometry. The in situ prepared 1-Cu2+ complex solution displays high selectivity to cyanide through Cu2+ displacement approach and possesses excellent tolerance to other common interference anions. The detection limits of sensor 1 to Cu2+ and 1-Cu2+ complex to cyanide were estimated to be 1.82 x 10(-8) M and 1.62 x 10(-6) M, respectively. This Cu2+ and cyanide successive recognition feature of sensor 1 makes it a potential utility for Cu2+ and cyanide detection in aqueous media.
