Summary of "Fluorescent ZnO quantum dots synthesized with urea for the selective detection of Cr6+ ion in water with a wide range of concentrations."

Nearly monodisperse Zinc oxide (ZnO) quantum dots (QDs) displayed yellow fluorescence were synthesized using urea as dispersant. In this paper, urea-ZnO QDs were used as fluorescent probe to detect Cr6+ in solution. The emission from the as-synthesized urea-ZnO QDs is selectively quenched when Cr6+ ions were added. Moreover, there are two linear relationships between the quenching of fluorescence intensity and the Cr6+ concentrations ranging from 4 μM to 1000 μM, with the detection limit for Cr6+ at 19.53 nM (on basis of 3σ/slope criterion). The quenching of fluorescence is attributed to aggregation of the QDs and charge transfer between the QDs and Cr6+ by measurements of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images, UV-visible absorption spectra and fluorescence lifetime.

The urea concentration of the blood stated in terms of nitrogen content. Serum (plasma) urea nitrogen is approximately 12% higher than blood urea nitrogen concentration because of the greater protein content of red blood cells. Increases in blood or serum urea nitrogen are referred to as azotemia and may have prerenal, renal, or postrenal causes.
