Single sensor for multiple analytes employing fluorometric differentiation for Cr3+ and Al3+ in semi-aqueous medium with bio-activity and theoretical aspects

Abstract

The structurally characterized (through Single crystal X-ray diffraction) Schiff base ligand N,N’-bis(4-methoxy-salicylaldehyde)azine(H2SALNN) exhibits poor fluorescence in the excited state, due to the result of rotational (cis/trans) isomerization along the azomethine group. However, in presences of Cr3+ and Al3+ the isomerization is blocked due to coordination with the metal ions thereby exhibiting turn on fluorescence for Al3+ and Cr3+ at two distinct wavelengths having much difference of two wavelengths(Δλ = 63 nm). Thus, the selective turn-on fluorescence behaviour of H2SALNN for Cr3+ and Al3+ is based on the blocking effect of C=N isomerization, and chelation-enhanced fluorescence (CHEF). The coordination modes of the complexes were investigated by spectroscopic and computational studies.
