|Abstract:||An amplified fluorescence turn-on assay for mercury(II) detection and quantification was developed. This method makes use of specific thymine/mercury(II)/thymine coordination to capture F1-iabeled DMA onto MP surface. Addition of a cationic conjugated polymer leads to an amplified F1 signal in solution. A sigmoidal Hg2+ working curve is obtained at fixed [NP] with a detection limit of 0.1 × 10-6 m. However, by reducing [Hg2+] and [NP] simultaneously, while maintaining [Hg 2+]:[DNA duplex] = 3:1, a linear calibration curve is observed with a detection limit of 5 × 10-9 m. The CCP-assisted mercury(II) assay shows potential applications in environmental mercury detection and for industrial process control. © 2009 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.|
