Ultrasensitive detection of phenolic compounds based on a spin-labeled luminescent lanthanide complex

Herein we propose a novel method for ultrasensitive detection of phenolic compounds. This method was developed based on a spin-labeled terbium complex Tb3+/cs124-DTPA-TEMPO (1). This spin-labeled terbium complex is a weakly luminescent compound and shows strong off-on luminescent response to phenolic compounds in the presence of horseradish peroxidase (HRP), glutathione (GSH) and hydrogen peroxide. The analyte recognition and signaling mechanism are discussed and the factors affecting the off-on luminescence have been explored. Detection limits of 1.1 nM for phenol, 1.1 nM for resorcine, 0.6 nM for m-cresol, 3 nM for p-cresol, and 0.5 nM for 2,4-dichlorophenol were obtained, respectively. The practicability of the proposed method has been tested in detection of the concentration of spiked nearshore seawaters, and recoveries of 77.4-80.4% with relative standard deviations (RSDs) of 1.0-2.2% were obtained.
