Summary of "Unprecedented ultralow detection limit of amines using a thiadiazole-functionalized Zr(IV)-based metal-organic framework."

A luminescent Zr(IV)-based MOF, with the underlying fcu topology, encompassing a π-conjugated organic ligand with a thiadiazole functionality, exhibits an unprecedented low detection limit of 66 nanomolar (nM) for amines in aqueous solution. Markedly, this ultra-low detection is driven by the hydro-gen bonding interactions between the linker and amines. This observation is fully supported by Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations which clearly corroborate the suppression of the twisting motion of the thiadiazole core in the presence of amine, reducing significantly the non-radiative recombination pathways and subsequently enhancing the emission intensity. Credibly, nicotine regarded as a harmful chemical and bearing an amine pending group is also detected with high sensitivity, positioning this MOF as a potential sensor for practical environmental applications. This finding not only provides an unprecedented low detection limit, but also serves as a benchmark to understand the sensing mechanism in MOFs.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A reagent that forms fluorescent conjugation products with primary amines. It is used for the detection of many biogenic amines, peptides, and proteins in nanogram quantities in body fluids.

Concentration or quantity that is derived from the smallest measure that can be detected with reasonable certainty for a given analytical procedure.

A nonfluorescent reagent for the detection of primary amines, peptides and proteins. The reaction products are highly fluorescent.

The use of fluorescence spectrometry to obtain quantitative results for the FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE. One advantage over the other methods (e.g., radioimmunoassay) is its extreme sensitivity, with a detection limit on the order of tenths of microgram/liter.

Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.
