Paper Abstract

The development of sensors based on immobilized fluorescent reagent is a matter of growing interest. Chemiluminescence seems to be attractive because light is generated through the chemical reactions. No light source is needed, which makes the experimental set up very simple. In present work, the sensor presented is an optical sensor based on fluorescence quenching. Fluorescence quenching refers to any process, which decreases the fluorescence intensity of a certain fluorophore. Acetone is a commercially used solvent of great importance as it has got wide chemical and biomedical applications. It is on the hazardous substance list as well as on the special health hazard substance list. Hence identification of acetone has an immense importance. Fluorescence quenching of 7-Diethylamino-4-trifluoro methyl Coumarin is reported here. It was found that the quenching observed was of dynamic in nature. It was also observed that quenching of the fluorescence of the indicator had a full reversibility. As it has a full reversibility, an optical sensor for acetone can be constructed on this quenching.
