Fluorescent sensor for water based on photo-induced electron transfer and Förster resonance energy transfer: anthracene-(aminomethyl)phenylboronic acid ester-BODIPY structure

Abstract

An anthracene-(aminomethyl)phenylboronic acid ester-BODIPY (DJ-1) was designed and developed as a fluorescent sensor based on photo-induced electron transfer (PET) and Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) for the detection of a trace amount of water in solvents, where the anthracene skeleton and BODIPY skeleton are the donor fluorophore and the acceptor fluorophore in the FRET process, respectively. It was found that the addition of water to organic solvents containing DJ-1 causes both the suppression of PET in the anthracene-(aminomethyl)phenylboronic acid ester as the PET-type fluorescent sensor skeleton and the energy transfer from the anthracene skeleton to the BODIPY skeleton through a FRET process, thus resulting in the enhancement of the fluorescence band originating from the BODIPY skeleton. This work demonstrates that the PET/FRET-based fluorescent dye composed of the donor fluorophore possessing PET characteristics and the acceptor fluorophore in the FRET process can act as a fluorescent sensor with a large SS for the detection of a trace amount of water in solvents.
