Specific Hg2+-mediated perylene bisimide aggregation for highly sensitive detection of cysteine

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hg2+ was found to specifically induce the aggregation of perylene bisimide in a “thymineHg2+thymine” binding motif and the resultant aggregates showed a highly selective and sensitive turn-on fluorescence response for cysteine, with a detection limit down to 9.6 nM.
