Wide-Range Fluorescent pH Sensor
A new molecular sensor that matches the pH range of glass pH electrodes could be used for measuring pH in biological cells and microfluidic devices (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja0686514).
The sensor, designed by A. Prasanna de Silva at Queen's University, Belfast, Northern Ireland, and coworkers, consists of four disubstituted anthracenes that fluoresce in parallel over different pH ranges by a mechanism of photoinduced electron transfer. The anthracenes have a fluorophore-spacer-receptor design . . .
