A new, easy-to-make artificial tongue can distinguish different brands of bottled water (ACS Sensors 2017, DOI: 10.1021/acssensors.7b00634). The simple chemical sensor uses a single type of fluorescent molecule to detect and quantify 13 different metal ions.

Fluorescent sensors are excellent for detecting minute, nanomolar levels of target chemicals in solution in . . .
