Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The special issue aims to collect paper of recent research on the development and applications of luminescent materials. Luminescent materials have gained significant attention due to their unique optical properties and diverse applications in the fields of sensing, imaging, bioanalytical assays, and optoelectronics.

This special issue covers a wide range of topics on the design, synthesis, fluorescent mechanism, and applications of advanced luminescent materials. Original research articles or reviews aimed at the development and characterization of novel luminescent materials for various applications are welcome.

Topics of interests for this special issue include (but are not limited to):

  • Synthesis and functionalization of luminescent nanoparticles (quantum dots, upconversion nanoparticles, etc.)
  • Development and optimization of luminescent probes for biosensing and imaging
  • Understanding the fluorescent mechanism of luminescent materials
  • Applications of luminescent materials in the areas of energy, environment, medicine, and biology.

We hope that this special issue will bring together researchers from different fields to share their latest findings and insights on luminescent materials, and ultimately advance this exciting research area.

Prof. Dr. Wei Chen
Guest Editor

Abstract
In this study, oxidized single-walled carbon nanohorns (oxSWCNHs) were prepared using nitric acid oxidation and subsequently combined with 3′6-carboxyfluorescein through charge transfer to prepare fluorescent probes. These oxSWCNHs were used to quench fluorogen signals at short distances and dissociate ssDNA using cryonase enzymes. [...] Read more.
In this study, oxidized single-walled carbon nanohorns (oxSWCNHs) were prepared using nitric acid oxidation and subsequently combined with 3′6-carboxyfluorescein through charge transfer to prepare fluorescent probes. These oxSWCNHs were used to quench fluorogen signals at short distances and dissociate ssDNA using cryonase enzymes. We established a method for rapidly detecting tetracycline (TC) in complex samples based on the amplification of cryonase enzyme signals. After optimizing the experimental conditions, our method showed a detection limit of 5.05 ng/mL, with good specificity. This method was used to determine the TC content in complex samples, yielding a recovery rate of 90.0–103.3%. This result validated the efficacy of our method in detecting TC content within complex samples. Full article
