Recent advances in quantum dot-based electrochemiluminescence sensor

Abstract

The performances of quantum dot (QD)-based electrochemiluminescence (ECL) sensors, have attracted attention for analytical sensing with the potential to provide ultrasensitive and real-time analysis. QD-based ECL sensors have many advantages, which offer unique platforms for ECL signal-transduction. Therefore, we review the sensing mechanisms and the applications of the QDs-based ECL sensor on their recent advances in this paper. The synthetic methods of QDs are summarized and compared firstly. Then, we discuss the critical sensing mechanisms and construction strategies used to incorporate QDs into ECL sensing systems, focusing on the advantages and limitations of different types of sensing methodology and modification methods. This article also highlights recent advances of representative examples of QDs-based ECL sensor, including ECL resonance energy transfer, multiplex immunoassay, ratiometric sensor, and so on. Finally, the challenges and prospects on the future directions are featured based on the current development of QD-based ECL sensor.
