Sensing a Bacillis anthracis biomarker with well-known OLED emitter EuTta3Phen

Author affiliations

Abstract

Dipicolinic acid (DPA) is a distinctive biomarker for bacterial spores. Here, we present the successful demonstration of dramatic Switch-OFF sensing of DPA using an easily synthesised Eu(III) phosphor applied primarily in light-emitting devices. The sensor in the presence of water and phosphate is also demonstrated to be effective.
