CdSe Quantum Dots Decorated by 3-Aminobenzeneboronic Acid as Fluorescence Probe for Glucose
A simple route to the production of high-quality CdSe quantum dots (QDs) is presented. The characterization of CdSe QDs was measured by Zetasizer Nano ZS, ultraviolet-visible spectoscopy and fluorospectrophotometer. The CdSe QDs were decorated by 3-Aminobenzeneboronic acid to obtain good fluorescent characteristic. Under the optimal conditions, the decreased normalized absorbance was linear to the concentration of glucose from 1.0×10−7 to 2.9×10−6 mol·L-1 with a detection limit of 5.0´10-8 mol·L-1. The relative standard deviation (RSD) for the determination of 1.0×10-7 mol·L-1 was 1.4 % by 11 replicate determination. In this paper, the fluorescent behavior of glucose with the decorated CdSe QDs was studied, and it is found that the system has a high sensitivity and selectivity for analysis of glucose.
