Highly-selective Lanthanide-containing Probe for Ratiometric Luminescence Detection of an Anthrax Biomarker

Abstract

Since anthrax spores are highly lethal to human beings and animals, and also potential biological warfare agents, it is highly desirable to develop simple, robust and easy-device sensors that can rapid, sensitive, and selective detection of Bacillus anthrax biomarker dipicolinic acid (DPA) quantitatively. Herein, we report a ratiometric luminescence “turn-on” sensor via mixing Eu3+ ions, sodium polyacrylate and internal luminescence reference in water, which can identify Bacillus anthrax biomarker dipicolinic acid (DPA) quantitatively with outstanding selectivity over aromatic ligands and amino acids, even including all of 5 DPA isomers.
