  • Green & Sensitive pH-dependent Spectrofluorimetric Assay of Tamsulosin
           Hydrochloride and Tadalafil in their New Combined Formulation for Benign
           Prostatic Hyperplasia: Application to Spiked Human Plasma

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Sensitive and green spectrofluorimetric methods were utilized for Tamsulosin Hydrochloride (TAM) and Tadalafil (TDL) assessment in bulk and their newly available combined mixture for benign prostatic hyperplasia and erectile dysfunction. The technique relies on measuring native fluorescence of TAM in 0.1 N HCl at 324 nm and TDL in 0.1 N NaOH at 348 nm due to their different fluorimetric behavior in acidic and basic media where TAM has no fluorescence in basic medium and vice versa. To achieve better regression, the spectra were derivatized allowing determination of TAM at 314 nm and TDL at 320 and 380 nm (peak to peak) by applying third and first derivative, respectively. In addition, pH-dependent “constant-wavelength synchronous” spectrofluorimetry was applied where TAM and TDL were determined at 218 nm in acidic medium and at 268 nm in basic medium, respectively. Finally, derivatizing the latter emission spectra allowed determination of TAM and TDL at 232 nm and at 262 and 278 nm (peak to peak), respectively. Acidic and basic emission spectra where scanned at λexc = 225 nm (for TAM assay) and at λexc = 247 nm (for TDL assay), respectively. Fluorescence–concentration plots were linear and the proposed methods were used for analysis of TAM and TDL combined laboratory prepared formulation. These procedures are green, sensitive and of low cost which make them suitable for quality control analysis of the two drugs. In addition, the high selectivity of the proposed methods was tested by successfully applying them for TAM and TDL assay in plasma samples.

  • Nitrogen-Doped and Surface Functionalized CDs: Fluorescent Probe for
           Cellular Imaging and Environmental Sensing of ClO–

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A novel nitrogen doped and surface functionalized fluorescent CDs (T1) was synthesized by one-step and green hydrothermal method, which exhibits a satisfactory fluorescence quantum yield and a series of admirable features such as good aqueous solubility, narrow particle size distribution, resistance to photobleaching as well as excitation-dependent behavior. Benefitting from above merits, T1 can be employed to serve as an outstanding sensing platform for sensitive and accurate detection of ClO– by remarkable fluorescence “on–off” process with rapid and anti-interference. More notably, the good biocompatibility and photostability can ensure enormous bioimaging potential and successful application of T1 in monitoring of exogenous ClO– in MG-63 cells. Meanwhile, T1 can also be regarded as a filter paper sensor providing a convenient and efficient analyzing technology for monitoring of free residual chlorine in practical environmental samples. All these results demonstrate that there exists promising possibility for practical applications of T1 in bioimaging systems and environmental monitoring. Graphical abstract

  • Novel Electrochemical Synthesis and Characterization of Zn(II) Metal
           Organic Framework for Photo-catalytic and Sensing Applications

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Multidentate 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid (organic linker), Zn (II) based Zn-BTC has been synthesized via electrochemical method. Quantitative and Qualitative analyses of synthesized metal–organic framework (MOF) have been done using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy, Energy Dispersive X- Ray Spectroscopy (EDS), and Photoluminescence (PL). Powder X-Ray Diffraction (PXRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) have been used for crystallographic and morphological & topographical analyses, respectively. Crystallographic studies confirm the formation of face-centered cubic (fcc) crystal structure with good crystallinity. Photo-catalytic activity of synthesized MOF has been tested using Methylene Blue (MB) dye as a test contaminant in aqueous media under sunlight irradiation. Recorded results reveal that the synthesized MOF efficiently degrade MB dye upto 96% under sunlight exposure after 270 min. Photoluminescence studies indicate that Zn-BTC could be used as an efficient material for sensing of nitroaromatic compounds (NACs): 4-Nitroaniline (4-NA), 2-Nitroaniline (2-NA), 3- Nitroaniline (3-NA), 2,4-Dinitrotoulene (2,4-DNT), 4-Nitrotoulene (4-NT) in N,N’-Dimethylformamide (DMF) by fluorescence quenching and shows maximum quenching efficiency towards 3-NA (72.80%). Notably, the variation in luminescence intensity of 3-NA@Zn-BTC shows a linear relationship over its different concentrations from 0–1000 ppb range with KSV = 2.7 × 104 M−1 and R2 = 0.9924 with limit of detection 0.889 ppb (6.43 µM) (LOD). The possible ways of luminescence quenching are successfully explained by the combination of Photoinduced Electron Transfer (PET) and Resonance Energy Transfer (RET) mechanisms. Additionally, the Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations have been employed to support the experimental results. Zn-BTC fully demonstrates the power of a multi component MOF, which provides a feasible pathway for the design of novel material towards fast responding luminescence sensing and photocatalytic degradation of pollutants.

      Abstract: Abstract The present work describes the synthesis and characterization of pyrene derivatives, N-(1-Pyrenoylmethyl) pyridinium bromide (PM-PB) and N-(1-Pyrenoylmethyl)-N,N,N-triethylammonium bromide (PM-TAB). The photophysical behavior of these molecules has been studied in various protic and aprotic solvents. Using steady state fluorescence intensity, fluorescence anisotropy and dynamic fluorescence lifetime studies, the sensitivity of these molecules towards the micellization process of bile salts has been monitored. These derivatives have been effectively used in estimating critical micellar concentration (CMC) of bile salt, sodium deoxycholate (NaDC).

  • Interactions of Environmental Pollutant Aromatic Amines With Photo Excited
           States of Thiophene Substituted 1,3,4-Oxadiazole Derivative: Fluorescence
           Quenching Studies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the present work, the fluorescence quenching of novel thiophene substituted1,3,4-oxadiazole derivative 2-(4-(4-vinylphenyl) phenyl)-5-(5-(4-vinylphenyl)thiophen-2-yl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole (TSO) by five different environmental pollutant aromatic amine derivatives like 2,4-dimethylaniline, 3-chloroaniline, 4-chloroaniline, o-anisidine, and m-toluidine has been studied at room temperature through steady-state and time-resolved methods. It is observed that, the quenching efficiency is highest in the case of o-anisidine and least in the case of 3-chloroaniline. The fluorescence quenching mechanism between TSO and aromatic amines is analysed through different quenching models. The results suggest that, the fluorescence quenching is due to diffusion assisted dynamic or collisional quenching according to the sphere of action static quenching model and according to the finite sink approximation model, the bimolecular quenching reactions are due to the collective effect of dynamic and static quenching. Further, cyclic voltammetry and DFT studies suggest that the fluorescence quenching is due to electron transfer. Binding equilibria analysis confirms the 1:1 stoichiometric ratio between fluorophore and the quencher.

      Abstract: Abstract A new tri-naphthoylated Cyclotriveratrylene molecule has been synthesized for the rapid and sensitive detection of 4-nitrotoluene (4-NT) among various nitro aromatic compounds (NACs) by using a spectrofluorimetric method. The newly derrivatized cyclotriveratrylene compound is successfully confirmed by using the available techniques of 1H-NMR, 13CNMR, and ESI–MS. This synthesised molecule is 1NC-CTV (1-Naptholy Chloride-Cyclotriveratrylene). Strong quenching in the fluorescence intensity of 1NC-CTV was observed upon the addition of 4-NT. Further quantum yield studies were carried out and by using the stern volmer it was concluded that the fluorescence quenching mechanism is dynamic or static. The molecule 1NC-CTV was further studied with the help of computational methods such as molecular docking to study the binding interactions and properties of the molecule.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Trivalent europium complexes exhibit good luminescent characteristics. A series of octacoordinated ternary europium complexes with fluorinated diketone and heteroaromatic auxiliary unit were synthesized. The synthesized europium complexes were characterized by elemental, thermal, electrochemical and spectroscopic analyses. Band gap values lie in range of semiconductors which confirm the conducting behavior of prepared complexes. Photoluminescence spectra were recorded in solid state and DMSO solvent. Emission spectral profiles have displayed most intense peak at ~ 612 nm corresponding to hypersensitive 5D0 → 7F2 transition. Colorimetric parameters suggest red luminous nature of europium complexes. The luminescent heteroleptic europium complexes might be utilized as emissive materials for fabricating display. Graphical

  • A Sensitive Spectrofluorimetric Method for Curcumin Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Curcumin (CUR), a natural polyphenolic compound extracted from the rhizomes of Curcuma longa, is used as a pharmaceutical agent, spice in food, and as a dye. Currently, CUR is being investigated for cancer treatment in Phase-II clinical trials. CUR also possesses excellent activities like anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-oxidant, therefore quality control is crucial. The present research work was to develop a new, simple, validated and time-saving rapid 96-well plate spectrofluorimetric method for the determination of CUR. The developed method was compared with routinely used high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) technique. The developed method were found to be linear in the concentration range of 15 to 3900 ng/mL with R2 ≥ 0.9983 for spectrofluorimetric and 50-7500 ng/mL with R2 ≥ 0.9999 for HPLC method. Accuracy, intraday and interday precision was adequate, with RSD lower than the suggested limits. The limits for the detection and the quantification of CUR were 7 and 15 ng/mL for spectrofluorimetric, and 25 and 50 ng/mL for HPLC respectively. The Bland-Altman analysis demonstrated the similarities between the two methods. The 96-well plate method was successfully applied to determine CUR in solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) and chitosan nanoparticles (Chi-NPs). The developed spectrofluorimetric method can hence serve as a possible replacement for the HPLC method for the quantification of CUR in healthcare and food products.

      Abstract: Abstract Optical and photophysical properties of 6-substituted-1,2,4-Triazine fluorescent derivative dye doped in silicate based sol–gel, homopolymer of methyl methacrylate (PMMA), and copolymer (MMA/diethylene glycol dimethacrylate) (DEGDMA) were investigated. The pores of different hosts and caging of the dye were found to effect on the parameters such as molar absorptivity, cross sections of singlet–singlet electronic absorption and emission spectra, excited state lifetime, quantum yield of fluorescence. The dipole moment of electronic transition, the length of attenuation and oscillator strength of electronic transition from So → S1 have been calculated. The dye was pumped with different powers using 3rd harmonic Nd: YAG laser of 355 nm and pulse duration 8 ns, with repetition rate 10 Hz. Good photo stability for dye was attained. After 55,000 pumping pulses of (10 mJ/pulse), the photo-stabilities were decreased to 53%, 48%, and 45% of the initial ASE of dye in sol gel, PMMA, and Co-polymer respectively. The dye in sol–gel matrix showed improvement of photo stability compared with those in organic polymeric matrices.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract To establish a rapid and highly sensitive assay for tumor-associated trypsinogen-2 (TAT-2) based on the time-resolved fluorescence immunoassay (TRFIA) and evaluate its potential clinical value in patients with lung cancer. The double-antibody sandwich method was used in detecting TAT-2 antigen concentrations, and two types of TAT-2 antibodies (coating antibodies and Eu3+ labeled antibodies) were used. A TAT-2–TRFIA method was then established, evaluated, and used in detecting the serum TAT-2 levels of healthy subjects and patients with lung cancer. The linear range of the TAT-2–TRFIA method was 1.53–300 ng/mL, the intra-assay coefficient of variation (CV) were between 1.67% and 8.42%, and the inter-assay CV were between 4.29% and 11.44%. The recovery rates of TAT-2–TRFIA were between 99.17% and 107.06%. The cross-reactivities of trypsin and T-cell immunoglobulin mucin 3 were 0.02% and 0.82%, respectively. The serum TAT-2 levels of patients with lung cancer were higher than those of healthy subjects (P < 0.001). Combined with TAT-2, the sensitivity and specificity of CEA and CA-125 for lung cancer improved significantly. Conclusion: We successfully established a highly sensitive TAT-2–TRFIA method, which was able to facilitate the timely diagnosis of lung cancer.

  • Biocompatible Carbon Dot Decorated α-FeOOH Nanohybrid for an Effective
           Fluorometric Sensing of Cr (VI) in Wastewater and Living Cells

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article reports the fluorometric detection of toxic hexavalent chromium Cr (VI)) in wastewater and Cr (VI) contaminated living cells using in-situ grown carbon quantum dots into the goethite (α-FeOOH) nano-matrix. The synthesized nano-hybrid shows enormous potential in determining the chromium contamination levels in various types of water samples. This selective fluorometric probe is enormously sensitive (LOD 81 nM) toward hexavalent chromium, which makes it a dedicated chromium sensor. Moreover, the sensing mechanism has been assessed using Stern–Volmer’s equation and fluorescence lifetime experiments showing the simultaneous occurrence of photoinduced electron transfer and the inner filter effect. This chromium sensor has also been employed to assess the contamination level in real-life industrial wastewater. The performance of this probe in a real-life wastewater sample is quite commendable. Further, this biocompatible fluorometric probe has been used to demonstrate the in-vitro sensing of Cr (VI) in HeLa cells. The rapid detection mechanism of hexavalent chromium in living cells has been validated using theoretical docking simulations. Henceforth, this fluorometric sensor material could open new avenues not only in wastewater monitoring but also in biomedical applications.

  • A Biophysical Study of Ru(II) Polypyridyl Complex, Properties and its
           Interaction with DNA

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Mononuclear Ru(II)Polypyridyl complexes of type [Ru(A)2BPIIP] (ClO4)2.2H2O, where BPIIP = 2-(3-(4-bromophenyl)isoxazole-5-yl)-1 H-imidazo [4,5-f] [1, 10] phenanthroline and A = bpy = bipyridyl (1), phen = 1,10 Phenanthroline (2), dmb = 4, 4' -dimethyl 2, 2'- bipyridine (3) & dmp = 4,4'-dimethyl-1,10 –Ortho Phenanthroline (4), were synthesized and their antibacterial activity were examined. The synthesized complexes were characterized and their interaction with DNA was studied using Computational and Biophysical methods (Absorption, emission methods, and viscosity). Molecular modelling studies were carried out for molecular geometry and electronic properties (Frontier molecular orbital HOMO—LUMO). The electrostatic potential surface contours for the complexes were analysed to give their nucleophilic level of sensitivity. The study reveals that the Ru(II) Polypyridyl complexes bind to DNA preponderantly by intercalation. The results recommend that the phen and dmp complex have more effective binding ability than the bpy and dmb, indicating the role of the ancillary ligand in determining their specificity for DNA binding. Further molecular docking studies suggested an octahedral geometry and bind to DNA by preferential binding to Guanine. The docking study additionally sustains the binding constant data acquired with the absorption and emission techniques.The results reveal that the nature of the ancillary Ligand plays a considerable role for the intercalation of the Ru(II) polypyridyl complex to DNA, which subsequently influences the antibacterial activity. Biological studies conducted on Gram‐Negative (E.coli and K.pneumonia) and Gram-Positive (S. aureus and E. faecalis) bacteria establish that complex 1 and 2 were considerably active against S. aureus and E. coli.

  • Highly Sensitive ‘on–off’ Pyrene Based AIEgen for Selective Sensing
           of Copper (II) Ions in Aqueous Media

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A Fluorescent chemosensor based on pyrene scaffold, 5-diethylamino-2-(pyren-1-yliminomethyl)-phenol (PDS) is synthesized using condensation method. It displays novel aggregation-induced emission (AIE) phenomena in its aggregated/solid state. The AIE characteristic of PDS is studied in CH3CN/H2O mixtures at different volume percentage of water and morphology of the aggregated particles are investigated by DLS and optical fluorescence microscopic study. The probe is aggregated into ordered one-dimensional (1-D) rod like microcrystals and exhibit high efficiency of solid-state emission with green colour. By taking advantage of its interesting AIE feature, the aggregated hydrosol has been utilized as ‘off–on’ type fluorescence switching chemosensor with superb selectivity and sensitivity towards Cu2+ions and the limit of detection (LOD) was calculated as low as 6.3 µM. A high Stern–Volmer quenching constant was estimated to be 2.88 × 105 M−1. The proposed chemosensor with AIE feature reveals a prospective view for the on-site visual recognition of Cu2+ ions in fluorescent paper strips and the synthesized probe is also exploited to find out the concentration of Cu2+ions in real water samples.

  • Benzothiazole Pyrazoline: Acid-Switchable Absorption and Fluorescence of
           Photoinduced Electron Transfer (PET)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Acid-responsive fluorescent compounds were prepared by introducing an ortho-hydroxyphenyl to pyrazoline with a benzothiazole backbone. These compounds demonstrated normal fluorescence photoinduced electron transfer (PET) under neutral conditions but the addition of trifluoroacetic acid showed an arctic blue fluorescence, we verified that a protonation process of nitrogen in the thiazole ring which weakened the ability of thiazole to donate electrons to the pyrazoline and changed the photoinduced electron transfer led to photoinduced electron transfer (PET), which was the mechanism of the fluorescence quenching phenomenon under strongly acidic conditions. The photophysical properties of Benzothiazole pyrazoline exhibited blue emission at 421 nm in aqueous DMSO. The blue shift in the emission was switched by acid in DMSO, showing the compound's distinct fluorescence peak at 554 nm. To investigate solvatochromism, eight different solvents were used. The red-shift emission observed in enhancing the polarity of solvents and emission in DMSO suggested the conformation of the molecule which led to the intramolecular charge transfer by color and emission changes. Furthermore, the probe was also applied using the High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with a UV detector to determine the trifluoroacetic acid in water samples. Interestingly, the method was found to be linear over the range of 10.0 µg L−1 to 250.0 µg L−1 (0.999). Under the optimum condition, the separation of trifluoroacetic acid was achieved in 20 min with the LOD of 1.3 µg L−1 and LOQ of 5.1 µg L−1. This proposed method also showed satisfactory results when applied for the analysis of trifluoroacetic acid in a water sample. Graphical

  • Multiphoton Phosphorescence of Simple Ketones by Visible-light Excitation
           and Its Consideration for Active Sensing in Space

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Acetone and butanone were seen to emit blue light around 450 nm when excited in the green by a high intensity pulsed laser. The pathway of this anti-Stokes emission is believed to be multiphoton absorption followed by phosphorescence, with emission being observed in the samples at cryogenic temperatures below their melting point and not seen from either ketone in their cold liquid state. Given the widespread nature of these simple ketones in off-world bodies and their potential importance as an organic resource for Space Resource Utilization, signals which enable the identification and tracing of these materials are of use in applications from remote sensing and mapping to monitoring during extraction processes. While the excitation process has a low efficiency, the ability to use visible light for sensing of these targets has advantages over UV sources, such as the wider availability of high-powered lasers which could be utilized.

  • A Significant Fluorescent Aptamer Sensor Based on Carbon Dots and Graphene
           Oxide for Highly Selective Detection of Progesterone

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, a fluorescent aptamer sensor was constructed based on the carbon dots (CDs) and graphene oxide (GO). This sensor combines the excellent fluorescence performance of CDs with the high specificity of aptamer, which can detect progesterone (P4) with high sensitivity and selectivity. In the absence of P4, the CDs-aptamer system and GO form a fluorescence resonance energy transfer process (FRET), which quenches the fluorescence of the CDs. When P4 is added, the aptamer specifically binds to it, resulting the fluorescence of the CDs is recovered. At optimal conditions, the fluorescence intensity recovered by the CDs has a linear relationship with the concentration of P4 in the range of 0.1–120 nM and the detection limit is 3.3 × 10–11 M. Besides, the sensor has satisfactory detection results of P4 in milk, indicating that constructed method has enormous potential for application in food safety.

  • An Efficient Inclusion Complex Based Fluorescent Sensor for Mercury (II)
           and its Application in Live-Cell Imaging

      Abstract: Abstract The formation of an inclusion complex between hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (H-CD) and 4-acetylphenyl-4-(((6-chlorobenzo[d]thiazol-2-yl)-imino)-methyl)-benzoate (L) was investigated by FT-IR, 1H-NMR, X-ray diffraction (XRD), FT-Raman, scanning electron microscope (SEM) techniques in the solid-state, absorption and emission spectroscopy in the liquid state and the virtual state as molecular docking technique. The binding properties of the inclusion complex (H-CD: L) with cations in deionized water was observed via absorbance and photoluminescence (PL) emission spectroscopy. The fluorescence probe (H-CD: L) inclusion complex (IC) was examined for several heavy metal cations, and identified that the PL emission wavelength of the complex displayed a continuous rise in the fluorescence intensity for Hg2+. A linearity range of 1 × 10–8 – 11 × 10–8 M and limit of detection value of 2.71 × 10–10 M was found to be achieved for the detection of Hg2+. This outcome proves that the inclusion complex H-CD: L would be a promising material for the development a solid-state fluorescence probe for detecting Hg2+. It also shows application in real sample analysis and cell imaging.

  • Chiral Fluorescence Recognition by Anthracene Fluorescent
           Dyes ⊂ Water-Soluble Pillar[5] arene containing Phosphonic Acid
           Group (PWP[5])

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Chirality plays a pivotal role in drugs, agrochemicals and food additives et al. The enantiomers of a chiral molecule often show huge difference in bioactivity, metabolism, and toxicity et al. thereby, the recognition of chiral molecules shows an increasingly important priority. In this paper, a novel method for chiral fluorescence recognition based on anthracene fluorescent dyes (AD) ⊂ water-soluble pillar[5] arene containing phosphonic acid group (PWP[5]) is developed. The AD as guest molecule can complex with PWP [5] to form 1:1 AD ⊂ PWP[5] assembly, and this assembly can be further used as a fluorescent probe to identify D/L-phenylalanine and D/L-phenylalaninol by fluorescent titration. The fluorescence intensity of the assembly was significantly reduced for D-phenylalanine and D-phenylalaninol, while L-phenylalanine or L-phenylalaninol was added to AD ⊂ PWP[5] assembly, the fluorescence intensity of the assembly almost unchanged. Hence, the chiral recognition based on assembly between the achiral fused ring fluorescent dye and achiral PWP[5] was developed.
