Abstract

A new lanthanide probe based on the fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) process with the combination of ytterbium porphyrinate complex and a rhodamine B derivative unit was synthesized to detect the Hg2+ ion with responsive emission in the visible and near-IR region with a detection limit of 10 μM
