Research Background and its significance: A fluorescence probe for recognizing multiple target ions has the advantages of being cost-effective and highly efficient. In this work, bisBODIPY linked-triazole based on catechol (BODIPY-OO) prepared by bridging two units of BODIPY fluorophore/triazole binding group with a catechol unit. Its spectroscopic properties were investigated. BODIPY-OO presented “turn-on” fluorescence behaviors toward the silver and mercury ions over other interfering metal ions.
Scope of Research: This work focused on the development of a new fluorescence probe, bisBODIPY linked-triazole based on catechol (BODIPY-OO) prepared by click chemistry and investigation of their selectivity and sensitivity toward metal ions by UV-VIS absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy methods.
Objective: To develop a new bifunctional fluorescence sensor for detection and differentiation of mercury and silver ions.
Research grant: This work was supported by the Faculty of Science, Mahidol University, the Center of Excellence for Innovation in Chemistry (PERCH-CIC), Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation, and Science Achievement Scholarship of Thailand (SAST).
