Fast, sensitive, selective and reversible fluorescence monitoring of TATP in a vapor phase

Abstract

The development of sensors for the detection of triacetone triperoxide (TATP) has attracted great attention. Here, we constructed a low-cost, portable, reusable, visible paper-based fluorescent sensor for the sensitive detection of TATP via vapor sampling. Under optimized conditions, the fluorescent film showed a high sensitivity to TATP with a detection limit of lower than 0.5 μg mL−1 in air. The linear range of the response is from 0.5 to 8.0 μg mL−1. In addition, the paper-based sensor exhibited high selectivity to TATP. The presence of potential interferents showed little effect on sensing. Moreover, sensing is fully reversible. Fortunately, the test can also be conducted in a visualized way.
