A facile approach was reported to synthesize β-cyclodextrin functionalized graphene that is bridged by 3,4,9,10-perylene tetracarboxylic acid (rGO-PTCA-CD) via a chemical route that involves the functionalization of rGO with PTCA followed by covalently cross-linking NH-β-CD. The as-prepared rGO-PTCA-CD was characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and electrochemical methods. The working electrodes were thoroughly studied for the cyclic voltammetry by using [Fe(CN)] as redox probe and using ferrocene as an internal standard. Furthermore, rGO-PTCA-CD was successfully applied to the recognition of phenylalanine enantiomers. The host-guest inclusion interaction between rGO-PTCA-CD and the phenylalanine enantiomers was investigated by differential pulse voltammetry with Fc used as a competitor. The recognition result showed that the rGO-PTCA-CD-modified glassy carbon electrode exhibited higher chiral recognition capability for L-Phe than for D-Phe with an enantioselectivity coefficient of 2.07. The proposed modified electrode had a limit of detection of 0.08 nM and 0.2 nM (S/N = 3) for L-Phe and D-Phe, respectively, with a linear response range of 0.01 mM to 5 mM, which was ascribed to the synergy of the rGO-PTCA (e.g., its excellent electrochemical performance) and β-CD (e.g., the hydrophobic inner cavity with good molecular recognition and enrichment abilities).

A 20-carbon dibenz(de,kl)anthracene that can be viewed as a naphthalene fused to a phenalene or as dinaphthalene. It is used as fluorescent lipid probe in the cytochemistry of membranes and is a polycyclic hydrocarbon pollutant in soil and water. Derivatives may be carcinogenic.
An approximately 80 amino acid RNA binding motif that consists of four anti-parallel surface beta sheets and two alpha helices arranged in a beta-alpha-beta-beta-alpha-beta configuration. One of the surface beta sheets interacts with two or three specific RNA bases. Interactions between additional sequences and the RNA, as well as within the RNA recognition motif increase the affinity and specificity of the protein-RNA interaction.
