A turn-on fluorogenic probe for detection of MDMA from ecstasy tablets

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a fluorogenic probe that is able to discriminate a range of primary or secondary biogenic amines and their natural or synthetic mimics, in water or buffer, by means of the turn-on transient generation of green fluorescence, with high quantum yields and low detection limits, thus making the system suitable for the detection of abuse drugs, such as MDMA, from ecstasy tablets.
