- In this study, we developed a new fluorescent probe (CMM) based on coumarin dye and malononitrile, for highly sensitive and selective detection of hypochlorite ion (ClO−). CMM showed a 45-fold fluorescence enhancement at 459 nm in the presence of ClO− and displayed an excellent selectivity over other competing species. The probe featured a fast response time (<15 s), which could be in favor of the real-time detection towards ClO−. Meanwhile, probe CMM could effectively monitor ClO− in physiological pH condition and the detection limit was estimated to be as low as 5.7 nM. Furthermore, its preeminent recognition properties made the successful application for monitoring ClO− in environmental water samples and labeling ClO− in living biological cells.
