A novel ratiometric fluorescent probe based on BODIPY derivative for Cu2+ detection in aqueous solution

Abstract

A novel ratiometric chemodosimeter 1 based on BODIPY derivative bearing 2-picolinic ester moiety has been designed and synthesized for copper ion (Cu2+) detection in aqueous buffered solution. Among tested metal ions, only addition of Cu2+ to probe 1 could lead to a red shift of emission band from 574 nm to 593 nm which is concomitant with a color change from yellow to red under illumination with 365 nm UV lamp. Mechanism research suggested that probe 1 could be high selectively hydrolyzed by complexation with Cu2+ to generate BODIPY derivative bearing 2-picolinic acid. The detection limit was calculated to be 0.08 M. Moreover, probe 1 could detect Cu2+ in real water samples and filter paper.
