Abstract

A strategy for the rational design of a novel colorimetric sensor based on dithioerythritol-modified gold nanoparticles for the selective recognition of Hg2+ in aqueous media is presented. This approach relies on the combination of gold nanoparticles with Hg2+ through sulfur-Hg 2+-sulfur interaction. The gold nanoparticles showed high selectivity toward Hg2+ with binding-induced red shift in the absorption spectra, with no response to major interfering cations such as Pb 2+,Cd2+, and Cu2+ in the presence of ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid. The system responds to Hg2+ with a detection limit of 100 nM and might open a new avenue for the development of Hg2+ sensing probes.
