Abstract The simple and cost-effective detection of uric acid in serum or urine is highly desirable as uric acid acts as a biomarker for various diseases. Herein, we report a rationally designed, non-enzymatic probe for the detection of uric acid in serum samples over a wide range of concentrations (lower: ∼60 μM, higher: ∼700 μM and normal: ∼120-380 μM) with 'turn-on' fluorogenic behaviour.
