Switching to a “turn-on” fluorescent probe for selective monitoring of cyanide in food samples and living systems

Author affiliations

Abstract

A fluorescent probe (TPA–BTD–MT) was designed to monitor cyanide ions (CN) with a “turn-on” response, changing from “turn-off” behavior due to the structural change. TPA–BTD–MT exhibited high selectivity for sensing CN in several food samples and was successfully used for imaging CN in living cells and animals with strong “turn-on” fluorescence.
