In near neutral to weak basic media, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (NaCMC) will dissociate to become a macro polymeric anion, which can react with acridine yellow (AY) or acridine orange (AO) to form an ion-association complex resulting in fluorescence quenching of the acridine dyes. The maximum fluorescence quenching wavelength is 505 nm (lambda(ex)=440 nm) for AY system and 530 nm (lambda(ex)=493 nm) for AO system, respectively. The fluorescence quenching values (DeltaF) are directly proportional to the concentrations of NaCMC and the linear ranges are 20.0-4000 microg/L for AY system and 20.0-7000 microg/L for AO system, separately. This method has high sensitivity and the detection limits for NaCMC are 58.0 microg/L (AY system) and 157.2 microg/L (AO system). The effects of coexistent substance have been investigated, and the results show that this method has a relatively good selectivity. A fluorescence quenching method for the determination of NaCMC based on the ion-association reactions of CMC polymeric anion with a basic acridine dye was developed. The method is sensitive, simple and fast.

    ABSTRACT: The fluorescence quenching behavior of two distyrylbenzenes (DSBs) newly prepared bearing strongly electron-donating groups was investigated. Several chlorinated and nitro compounds quench the fluorescence of both DSBs with various efficiencies depending on the electron-withdrawing properties; the strongly electron-withdrawing compound, such as 2,4,5-trichlorophenol and 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene, effectively diminish the fluorescence intensities of the DSBs. The fluorescence quenching was also detected in the interaction between the azacrown DSB and phenylboronic acid, while the fluorescence recovers by adding triethylamine. These quenching phenomena are attributed to the photo-induced electron transfer (PET) process. On the other hand, the azacrown DSB selectively interacts with Ca(2+) to decrease its fluorescence intensity, but the DSB with the dimethylamino groups did not. These results suggest a potential use of these types of compounds as sensors for strongly electron-withdrawing substances and a suitable metal cation.

    ABSTRACT: In China nowadays, some enterprises begin to develop the sustainable supply chain (S-SC) because of the strengthening of environment regulations. How to deal with certain multi-criteria decision-making problems effectively and efficiently is the key for the development of S-SC. In this paper, the main factors and their relationship during the operation of S-SC were analyzed, and combined with the analytic network approach, an integrative decision-making model was proposed to handle different kinds of decision-making problems. The decision-making process combined with a simple example was also given to describe the application of the proposed model. The conclusions are helpful to guide the construction and operation of S-SC by decision-makers.

    ABSTRACT: Photophysical properties and sensory capabilities of Acridine Orange (AO) have been studied in absence and presence of biomimicking anionic SDS (sodium dodecyl sulphate) micellar nanocage at various pH, where Cu2+ is introduced as sensing input. In pure aqueous system, AO fluorescence intensity quenched and enhanced by Cu2+ at pH ∼2 and pH ∼8, respectively. In presence of SDS micelle AO fluorescence intensity quenched by Cu2+ at both pH ∼2 and pH ∼8. Sensing [i.e. quenching] efficiency has been enhanced in presence of SDS micelle by ∼150 times at pH ∼2 and ∼250 times at pH ∼8, when compared with pure aqueous system.
