An arylboronate locked fluorescent probe for hypochlorite


An unusual arylboronate based fluorescent probe R1 was synthesized for selective and sensitive detection of ClOˉ. Detailed mechanistic study revealed that R1 reacted with ClOˉ through an oxidation to chlorination mechanism, and the arylboronate moiety in R1 acted as a “lock” to eliminate the effects of pH fluctuations. With this design strategy, R1 was successfully used to detect as low as 6.4 nM of ClOˉ over other ROS species in a wide pH range from 4.5 to 9.0.
