Highly Sensitive and Selective Fluorescent Detection of Gossypol Based on BSA-Stabilized Copper Nanoclusters.

ABSTRACT: In this paper, fluorescent copper nanoclusters (NCs) are used as a novel probe for the sensitive detection of gossypol for the first time. Based on a fluorescence quenching mechanism induced by interactions between bovine serum albumin (BSA) and gossypol, fluorescent BSA-Cu NCs were seen to exhibit a high sensitivity to gossypol in the range of 0.1?100 µM. The detection limit for gossypol is 25 nM at a signal-to-noise ratio of three, which is approximately 35 times lower than the acceptable limit (0.9 µM) defined by the US Food and Drug Administration for cottonseed products. Moreover, the proposed method for gossypol displays excellent selectivity over many common interfering species. We also demonstrate the application of the present method to the measurement of several real samples with satisfactory recoveries, and the results agree well with those obtained using the high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method. The method based on Cu NCs offers the followings advantages: simplicity of design, facile preparation of nanomaterials, and low experimental cost.
