    The effect of room temperature ionic liquid (RTIL) on the formation of the fluorescence ternary complex oxalate-sodium morin-5-sulfonate (NaMSA)-Aluminium(III) has been studied. In weakly acidic medium and in the presence of RTIL, 1-Butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate (BMIM-PF6), total complex formation is achieved as compared with the formation of the binary complex of NaMSA-Aluminium(III). The fluorescence characteristics of the system allowed the establishment of a very sensitive method for the spectrofluorimetric determination of oxalate ion. The ternary complex formed its highest fluorescence signal at 513 nm and excitation at 420 nm. In these conditions, the method produces a detection limit of 0.57 ng mL(-1). The procedure has been satisfactorily applied to the determination of oxalate ion in a vegetal tissue (spinach leaves).

    This paper reports the use of a polymer inclusion membranes (PIMs) for direct determination of Al(III) ions in natural water by using a fluorescence based optode. The best composition of the PIMs consisted of 60 wt.% (m/m) poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC) as the base polymer, 20 wt.% (m/m) triton X-100 as an extractant, 20 wt.% (m/m) dioctyl phthalate (DOP) as plasticizer and morin as the reagent, was used in this study. The inclusion of triton X-100 was used for enhancing the sorption of Al(III) ions from liquid phase into the membrane phase, thus increasing the optode fluorescence intensity. The optimized optode was characterized by a linear calibration curve in the range from 7.41 × 10(-7) to 1.00 × 10(-4) molL(-1) of Al(III), with a detection limit of 5.19 × 10(-7) molL(-1). The response of the optode was 4 min and reproducible results were obtained for eight different membranes demonstrated good membrane stability. The optode was applied to the determination of Al(III) in natural water samples. The result obtained is comparable to atomic absorption spectrometry method.

    A series of Zn(II)-Schiff bases I, II and III complexes were synthesized by reaction of o-phenylenediamine with 3-methylsalicylaldehyde, 4-methylsalicylaldehyde and 5-methylsalicylaldehyde. These complexes were characterized using FT-IR, UV-Vis, Diffuse reflectance UV-Vis, elemental analysis and conductivity. Complex III was characterized by XRD single crystal, which crystallizes in the triclinic system, space group P-1, with lattice parameters a=9.5444(2) Å, b=11.9407(2) Å, c=21.1732(3) Å, V=2390.24(7) Å(3), D ( c )=1.408 Mg m(-3), Z=4, F(000)=1050, GOF=0.981, R1=0.0502, wR2=0.1205. Luminescence property of these complexes was investigated in DMF solution and in the solid state. Computational study of the electronic properties of complex III showed good agreement with the experimental data.

    A coumarin-terminated self-assembled monolayer on silver particles (C-SAM) from the reduction of silver ions in the presence of compound 3 was successfully prepared by utilizing phase transfer method, and analyzed by FTIR, SEM-EDS, UV-Visible and a particle sizer. The fluorescence behavior of coumarin termini was carried out in ethanol and chloroform with emission wavelength determined at 386 nm, suggesting an interaction between the carbonyl group and the solvent media. The dispersion was then investigated in acidic and basic conditions, showing a direct proportional correlation between the emission and the pH of the aqueous. These results were consistent for interpreting hydrogen bonds, particularly between the carbonyl group with either proton of the alcohol (C=O----H-O-R) or positive species in acidic conditions (C=O----H(+)). The interactions were possible only when the coumarin terminal rearranged in the monolayer and the carbonyl exerted towards the solvent media, while the rest of the molecules were separated from the solvents.

    A new chalcone-based probe containing coumarin and naphthol at both ends has been synthesized via aldol condensation. The uniqueness of the newly derived probe can be ascribed to the presence of naphthol and coumarin units acting as binding site and signaling element, respectively. The fluorogenic behaviors toward various anions were investigated. The probe was characterized by various spectroscopic techniques and the in-depth study led to show excellent selectivity and sensitivity for fluoride ions. The hydrogen bonding thus formed with fluoride anion provides remarkable fluorometric responses. The interactions of the probe with fluoride ions were determined by fluorescence, FT-IR and NMR spectroscopic techniques. The exploratory studies by fluorescent spectral changes augur well for the naked-eye sensing applications.

    Diarylidenecyclopentanone compound namely, 2,5-bis[4-choloroacetyl-(thiophen-2-ylmethylene)]cyclopentanone (BCTCP) was firstly synthesized using the normal condition of Friedel-Crafts method by reacting 2,5-bis(thiophen-2-ylmethylene)cyclopentanone (BTCP) with chloroacetyl chloride in the presence of aluminum chloride anhydrous. The structure of this compound was confirmed by elemental and spectral analyses including FT-IR,1H-NMR,13C-NMR and mass spectrometry. The electronic absorption and emission properties of BCTCP were studied in different solvents. BCTCP displays a slight solvatochromic effect of the absorption and emission spectrum, indicating a small change in dipole moment of BCTCP upon excitation. BCTCP displayed photodecomposition in chlorinated solvents upon irradiating with 365 nm light. Ground and excited states electronic geometric optimizations were performed using density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT), respectively. A DFT natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis complemented the intramolecular charge transfer (ICT). The simulated maximum absorption and emission wavelengths are in line the observed ones in trend, and were proportionally red-shifted with the increase of the solvent polarity. The stability, hardness and electrophilicity of BCTCP in different solvents were correlated with the polarity of the elected solvents.

    A label -free DNAzyme amplified biosensor is found to be highly selective and sensitive towards fluorescent detection of Pb2+ ions in aqueous media. The DNAzyme complex has designed by the hybridization of the enzyme and substrate strand. In the presence of Pb2+, the DNAzyme activated and cleaved the substrate strand of RNA site (rA) into two oligonucleotide fragments. Further, the free fragment was hybridized with a complementary strand on the surface of MBs. After magnetic separation, SYBER Green I was added and readily intercalate with the dsDNA to gives a bright fluorescence signal with intensity directly proportional to the concentration of Pb2+ions. A detection limit of 5 nM in Pb2+ the detection range 0 to 500 nM was obtained. This label- free fluorescent biosensor has been successfully applied to the determination of environmental water samples. Then results open up the possibility for real-time quantitative detection of Pb2+ with convenient potential applications in the biological and environmental field. Graphical Abstract.

    The platinum(II) salphen complex N,N'-Bis-4-(hydroxysalicylidene)-phenylenediamine-platinum(II); (1) and its two derivatives containing hydroxyl functionalized side chains N,N'-bis-[4-[[1-(2-hydroxyethoxy)] salicylidene] phenylenediamine-platinum(II); (2) and N,N'-bis-[4-[[1-(3-hydroxypropoxy)] salicylidene] phenylenediamine-platinum(II); (3) were synthesized and characterized. The structures of the complexes were confirmed by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy, FTIR, ESI-MS and CHN elemental analyses. The effects of the hydroxyl substituent on the spectral properties and the DNA binding behaviors of the Pt(II) complexes were explored. The binding mode and interactions of these complexes with duplex DNA (calf thymus DNA and porcine DNA) and also single-stranded DNA were studied by UV-Vis and emission DNA titration. The complexes interact with DNA by intercalation binding mode with the binding constants in the order of magnitude (Kb = 104 M-1, CT-DNA) and (Kb = 105 M-1, porcine DNA). The intercalation of the complex in the DNA structure was proposed to happen by π-π stacking due to its square-planar geometry and aromatic rings structure. The phosphorescence emission spectral characteristics of Pt(II) complexes when interacted with DNA have been studied. Also, the application of the chosen hydroxypropoxy side chains complex (3) as an optical DNA biosensor, specifically for porcine DNA was investigated. These findings will be valuable for the potential use of the platinum(II) salphen complex as an optical DNA biosensor for the detection of porcine DNA in food products.

    The optical properties of a series of side chain liquid crystalline polymers (P1-P3) containing azo-benzothiazole mesogen with different terminal substituents (-H, -CH3 and -OCH2CH3) in four organic solvents of varying polarity have been investigated by absorption and fluorescence spectral analysis. Solvatochromic studies of P1-P3 did not show any regular variation on the absorption and emission intensities with changing the polarity of solvent. Theoretical studies were performed based on different solvent correlation methods such as Dimroth-Reichardt and Kamlet-Taft methods to investigate the solute-solvent interactions. Both absorption and emission maxima of investigated polymers were bathochromically shifted with the replacement of sixth position hydrogen atom by electron donating groups in benzothiazole moiety. The emission intensities of the studied polymers showed decreasing trend with increasing temperature.
