A straightforward method for the colorimetric detection of endogenous biological cyanide - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Männel-Croisé, C; Probst, B; Zelder, F (2009). A straightforward method for the colorimetric detection of endogenous biological cyanide. Analytical Chemistry, 81(22):9493-9498.

Abstract

Corrin-based chemosensors allow the rapid and selective colorimetric detection of endogenous biological cyanide. The color change from orange to violet can be easily observed with the "naked eye" (Deltalambda(max) = 51 nm). The methodology works directly in the biological matrix without time-consuming sample pretreatment and the use of special reaction conditions. It was possible to study the enzymatic release of cyanide from its biological precursor linamarin with diffuse reflectance UV-visible (DRUV-vis) spectroscopy on a freshly prepared biological surface. These experiments were accompanied by stopped-flow kinetic measurements under homogeneous conditions. Detection in the biological sample is based on the selective coordination of cyanide to the metal-based chemosensor as proven by UV-vis and (1)H NMR spectroscopy. Examples of applications during food manufacturing are given.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
