Inorg Chem. 2016 Nov 7;55(21):11440-11446. Epub 2016 Oct 24.The tetrakisquinoline ligand HT(6-MeO8Q)HPN (N,N,N',N'-tetrakis(6-methoxy-8-quinolylmethyl)-2-hydroxy-1,3-propanediamine) exhibited Zn2+-induced fluorescence enhancement with high specificity and sensitivity (IZn/I0 = 57 and ICd/IZn = 6% in the presence of 2 equiv of Zn2+; LOD (limit of detection) = 15 nM). This ligand also exhibited fluorescence enhancement specific to inorganic phosphate (PO43-) in DMF-HEPES buffer (50 mM HEPES, 100 mM KCl, pH = 7. Read More
