Designing an anion-functionalized fluorescent ionic liquid as an efficient and reversible turn-off sensor for detecting SO2

Abstract

A novel anion-functionalized fluorescent ionic liquid was designed and prepared, which was capable of capturing sulphur dioxide with high capacity and could also be used as a good colorimetric and fluorescent SO2 sensor. Compared to conventional fluorescent sensors, this fluorescent ionic liquid did not undergo aggregation-caused quenching or aggregation-induced emission, and the fluorescence was quenched when exposed to SO2, and the fluorescence would quench when exposed to SO2. The experimental absorption, spectroscopic investigation, and quantum chemical calculations indicated that the quenching of the fluorescence originated from SO2 physical absorption, not chemical absorption. Furthermore, this fluorescent ionic liquid exhibited high selectivity, good quantification, and excellent reversibility for SO2 detection, and showed potential for an excellent liquid sensor.
