Curcumin based chemosensor for selective detection of fluoride and cyanide anions in aqueous media

Author affiliations

Abstract

The conjugate N,N-dimethyl curcumin analogue fluorophore dye 1 has been synthesized and its performance as a sensor was demonstrated. As a fluoride and cyanide sensor it enabled visual detection, and showed changes in UV-vis and fluorescence spectra in the presence of fluoride and cyanide ions in aqueous medium. The Job's plot indicated that the formation of a complex between dye-1 fluoride ions has a 1 : 1 stoichiometric ratio.
