A fluorescent sensor for selective detection of cyanide using mesoporous graphitic carbon(IV) nitride

Author affiliations

Abstract

A turn-on fluorescence sensor, Cu2+–c-mpg-C3N4, was developed for detection of CN in aqueous solution by simply mixing cubic mesoporous graphitic carbon nitride (c-mpg-C3N4) and aqueous solution of Cu(NO3)2. The highly sensitive detection of CN with a detection limit of 80 nM is not only possible in aqueous solution but also in human blood serum.
