Selective turn-on fluorescence detection of cyanide in water using hydrophobic CdSe quantum dots

Author affiliations

Abstract

The ability of 2,2′-bipyridine-bound copper(II) ions to quench the photoluminescence of hydrophobic CdSe quantum dots is used to create a novel, selective turn-on fluorescence cyanide sensor.
