Tb(iii) functionalized vesicles for phosphate sensing: membrane fluidity controls the sensitivity

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a modular design of vesicular chemosensors by co-embedding a Tb(III) complex and a receptor–sensitizer conjugate in phospholipid vesicles. The binding of phosphate anions to the vesicle surface in aqueous media is detected by a decrease in Tb(III) phosphorescence. The sensory response can be modulated by a variation in the membrane fluidity.
