A selective turn-on fluorescent probe for Cd2+ based on a boron difluoride β-dibenzoyl dye and its application in living cells

Abstract

Herein we report the first example of a difluoroboron dibenzoyl based fluorescent probe for Cd2+ detection. The probe displays high selectivity and sensitivity toward Cd2+ over Zn2+ in aqueous solution under physiological conditions. Fluorescence imaging experiments demonstrate its potential application for detecting Cd2+ in living cells.
