A simple yet highly selective colorimetric sensor for cyanide anion in an aqueous environment

Author affiliations

Abstract

The nucleophilic nature of cyanide is used to create a simple, sensitive, and highly effective sensor, 2-(trifluoroacetylamino)anthraquinone 2 (2-TFAQ), for the easy “naked-eye” detection of very low concentrations of cyanide in an aqueous environment.
