Ratiometric fluorescent probe for enantioselective detection of D-cysteine in aqueous solution
A ratiometric fluorescent probe based on a Cd2+-ACAQ complex was designed and demonstrated for the chemo-and enantioselective detection of cysteine in 99:1 buffered HEPES: ACN solutions. Under the measuring conditions, the sensor demonstrates high selectivity toward Cys against Hcy and GSH, and an enantioselectivity of 3.35 can be achieved for antipodal forms of Cys. © 2011 Zhou et al; licensee Beilstein-Institut.
