Metal-based NO sensing by selective ligand dissociation

Journal Article

Nitric oxide reacts selectively with the O2 stable, weakly fluorescent complex [Co(DATI-4)] in dichloromethane solution to dissociate a fluorophore- substituted arm of the aminotroponiminate ligand DATI-4. The resulting cobalt-dinitrosyl adduct (see picture) effects a positive fluorescence response. The detection limit of 2 is 50-100 μm for NO.
