A new “turn-on” chemodosimeter for Hg2+: ICT fluorophore formation via Hg2+-induced carbaldehyde recovery from 1,3-dithiane

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel sensitive and specific Hg2+ chemodosimeter, derived from 1′,3′-dithiane-substituted 2,1,3-benzoxadiazole, displays “turn-on” fluorescent and colorimetric responses via an Hg2+-triggered aldehyde recovery reaction. Its potential to monitor Hg2+ in living organisms has been demonstrated using zebrafish larvae.
