This paper proposes a fluorescent aptasensor for the detection of carbendazim (CBZ) in aqueous solution using CBZ-specific aptamer as sensing probe, gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and Rhodamine B (RhoB) as indicator, respectively. In the absence of CBZ, CBZ aptamer could wrap AuNPs and maintained it dispersed in NaCl solution basically. Contrarily, the aptamer could specifically combine with CBZ and form a stable aptamer-CBZ complex, leaving AuNPs exposed to be aggregated by NaCl solution. The dispersed AuNPs could efficiently quench the fluorescence of RhoB, but those aggregated AuNPs have poor capability to impair the fluorescent indicator. Thus, the concentration of CBZ could be detected quantitatively through the distinction of the fluorescence intensity. This convenient fluorescent assay for CBZ had a wide linear range from 2.33 to 800 nM and a 2.33 nM limit of detection (LOD). Furthermore, it had high selectivity over pesticides, antibiotics, metal ions and other disrupting chemicals. As for application, the method could determine CBZ in water samples with recoveries in the range of 96.3-111.2%. This fluorescent aptasensor possessed great potential application for CBZ detection in actual aquatic environment.
