Abstract
this results in a significant color change from wine red to dark midnight blue. The Hg4f and As3d signals in the X-ray photoelectron spectra of Hg2+ (As3+)-DPL-AuNPs presented binding energies indicative of Hg2+?N(O) and As3+?N(O) bonds, and the molecular fragment observed in time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectra confirmed that Hg2+ and As3+ coordinated with two oxygen and two nitrogen atoms in DPL. The detection of Hg2+ and As3+ can be accomplished by observing the color change with the naked eye or by photometric methods, and this was optimized to provide optimal probe sensitivity. The assay method can be applied for environmental monitoring by first selectively quantifying Hg2+ in water samples at pH 6, then estimating the As3+ concentration at pH 4.5. The efficiency of the DPL-AuNP probe was evaluated for the sequential quantification of Hg2+ and As3+ in tap, pond, waste, and river water samples, and absorbance ratios (A730/A525) were correlated with Hg2+ and As3+ concentrations in the linear range of 0?1.4 mM. The limits of detection in water samples were found to be 0.5 and 0.7 nM for Hg2+ and As3+, respectively. This novel probe can be utilized for the dual determination of Hg2+ and As3+, even in the presence of interfering substances in environmental samples.; A highly sensitive and selective colorimetric assay for the dual detection of Hg2+ and As3+ using gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) conjugated with D-penicillamine (DPL) was developed. When Hg2+ and As3+ ions coordinate with AuNP-bound DPLs, the interparticle distance decreases, inducing aggregation
