New system to detect mercury in water systems!

new ultra-sensitive, low-cost and portable system for detecting mercury in environmental water has been developed
by University of Adelaide researchers. The researchers team has engineered a nanoporous material called nanoporous
anodic alumina to make a special structure called a rugate filter. The surface of the filter has been modified to make
it selective to mercury ions. As water flows through the pores of the filter, the mercury ions become attached to the surface.
An optical systemreflection spectroscopymeasures the amount of mercury present. A range of tests have shown the sensor can
detect mercury at levels of 200 parts per billion in a complex mixture of other metal ions and environmental samples. Continued
work will seek to enhance the optical signals for even higher sensitivity. The promising sensing performance of this system
along with its cost-competiveness and portability make it an excellent potential alternative to current analytical techniques.
This technique could provide the basis for future point-of-analysis systems for monitoring water quality on site and may help
implement better monitoring processes around the world.


Third group : These radicals cannot be detected by either dil. H2SO4 or conc. H2SO4. For detection of these

Fluorescent sensor provides low-cost diagnosis of cystic fibrosis!

cientists have developed a new diagnostic test for cystic fibrosis. The new device provides a cheaper, easier way
to detect levels of chloride in sweat, which are elevated in cystic fibrosis patients. Cystic fibrosis is caused by
two faulty copies of a gene that affects the flow of chloride in and out of cells, leading to damage to the lungs
and digestive system. Testing chloride levels in sweat is done by manual titrationa labour-intensive technique that
is subject to human error and can miss cases. But a new system is based on a fluorescent dye that decreases in the
presence of chloride, allowing the test to be automated. To create the sensor, the researchers first developed a citrate-
based dye that emits fluorescent light. In the presence of chloride, however, the amount of light given off by the
molecule diminishes: the more chloride, the less fluorescence. The new test can detect chloride over a wider range of
concentrations and, because its automated, it avoids the problem of human error. Besides detecting chloride, the new
fluorescence-based system can also tell the difference between three ions: chloride, bromide, and iodide.
