A Water-Stable 3D Eu(Ⅲ)-Organic Framework as a Bi-Functional Ratiometric Luminescent Sensor for Fast, Sensitive and Selective Detection of ODZ and Hg2+ in Aqueous Media


  • With the development of economy, people have higher demand for their health. Antibiotics are important pharmaceuticals and widely used for the prevention of infections by bacteria and fungi.[1, 2] However, the abuse of antibiotics has brought various problems, which can give rise to adverse effects on nontarget organisms, increase bacterial resistance and bright serious ecological environmental pollution.[3, 4] Mercury (Hg2+) as an extremely toxic metal ion released from industry is one of the most environmental pollutants. It has shown an extensive range of poisonous actions to human and the accumulation of Hg2+ in human body leads to several diseases such as neurodevelopmental disorders and subclinical brain dyfunction.[5] In addition, antibiotics and Hg2+ would constantly enter aquatic systems through anthropogenic emissions over time. Therefore, it is a significantly urgent requirement to develop an effective method for sensing these harmful pollutants in water.

    The current detection methods, such as liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS), [6] ion mobility spectrometry (IMS), [7] capillary electrophoresis (CE), [8] and capillary electrochromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (CEC-MS), [9] are usually time-consuming, expensive, and complex operation. Compared with these methods, luminescent method has been considered as one of the promising and compelling techniques for sensing antibiotics and metal ions due to fast response, costeffective and convenient analysis. The choice of sensor material is central to achieving an effective detection of the targeted analyte. Until now, several inorganic luminescent nanoprobes have been reported.[10-12] Compared with these inorganic materials, MOFs as prospective fluorescent sensing materials have attracted more attention due to their unique properties such as permanent porosity, high surface area, and easily tailorable structures and functions.[13-15] A number of luminescent MOFs with a single emission center have been used to detect different analytes, [16, 17] but such monochromatic luminescence signals are not accurate because many non-analyte factors such as unstable instrumental parameters and background luminescence can alter the absolute solid-state luminescence intensities.[18] In contrast, ratiometric luminescent sensors based on the intensity ratio of two independent emissions can solve the problem mentioned because the self-calibrating or self-referencing mechanism from different but correlated emission centers can minimize the external influence.[19-22] Therefore, the ratiometric luminescent sensors have better accuracies, sensitivities, and selectivities toward environmental pollutants.

    Luminescent lanthanide metal-organic frameworks (Ln-MOFs) with fascinating optical properties, such as large Stokes shifts, high color purity, relatively long luminescence lifetimes and narrow emission spectra, have recently been demonstrated as a promising strategy for constructing ratiometric luminescent sensors.[23, 24] Up to now, many MOF-based ratiometric sensors have been reported, which were achieved by encapsulating Ln3+, dyes, carbon dots (CDs), and luminescent complexes as luminescent modules into luminescent MOFs.[25] Qian et al. first encapsulated the luminescent lanthanide metal ion Eu3+ in the metal-organic framework UiO-66-(COOH)2 crystal and then introduced the tran-sition metal ion Cu2+, thus obtaining a new ratiometric luminescent sensor Eu3+/Cu2+@UiO-66-(COOH)2 for detecting H2S content in aqueous solution.[26] Hou et al. have reported several mixed lanthanide metal-organic frameworks Ln (TATB) for visual detection of fluoride anions.[27] Xiao and coworkers prepared lanthanide metal-organic framework Eu-dipicolinic acid/2-aminophthalic acid (Eu-DPA/PTA-NH2) as a double-color ratiometric fluorescent water sensor, which showed ultrasensitive and linear broad-range response to water.[28] However, the MOF synthesized by assembly is complex and lacks long-term stability.

    In this work, we elaborately designed and successfully synthesized an acylamide-functionalized dicarboxylate ligand 4, 4′-((naphthalene-1, 4-dicarbonyl)bis(azanediyl))dibenzoic acid (H2L), in which two acylamide groups are introduced as guest-accessible functional organic sites (FOS) to promote the sensing ability of target MOFs. As expected, a new Eu(III)-MOF {[(CH3)2NH2] [Eu(L)2(H2O)2]·xDMF}n (1) was synthesized by the reaction of H2L and Eu(NO3)3·6H2O under solvothermal conditions. The analysis showed that complex 1 exhibits a 3D porous structure with good water stability and luminescent property, so it could be used as a ratiometric luminescent sensor for rapid, sensitive, selective and reversible detecting ornidazole (ODZ) and Hg2+ in aqueous media (Figure 1). To our knowledge, no MOFs as a ratiometric lumine-scent sensor via the quenching and enhancement of its luminescence for ornidazole and Hg2+ detection have been reported so far.

    Description of the Crystal Structure. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis reveals that complex 1 crystallizes in orthorhombic space group Pcc2 and represents a 3D framework based on L2- ligands and the [EuO8] building block. As shown in Figure 2a, each central Eu(III) ion is eight-coordinated by four carboxylate oxygens from four µ4-η1:η1:η1:η1 bridging L2- ligands, two carboxylate oxygens from two µ2-η1:η1 bridging L2- ligands and two water oxygen atoms. The coordination geometry for Eu1 was biaugmented trigonal prism with the CShM value of 0.901, whereas Eu2 adopts a biaugmented trigonal dodecahedral geometry with CShM in 0.932, as calculated by SHAPE 2.1.[29] The Eu-O bond lengths (2.304(9)-2.526(10) Å) fall in a normal range. In complex 1, two adjacent Eu3+ ions were connected by carboxylate groups from L2- ligands to produce the 1D parallelly aligned Eu-O-C chains extending along the c axis with the Eu···Eu separation of 4.9475(29) Å (Figure 2b). As shown in Figure 2c, adjacent Eu-O-C chains are linked by two L2- ligands to form a 2D layer, and then these 2D layers are connected by another L2- ligands, forming a three-dimensional bcu type structure (Figure 2d), with 1D channels of rhombic apertures in the [001] direction. In general, 1 was connected by ligands and [EuO8] building block to form a 3D porous anionic framework. Negative charges of the framework were balanced by protonated (CH3)2NH2+ ions generated upon the hydrolysis of DMF molecules under solvothermal conditions.[30, 31] The guest (CH3)2NH2+ cations and solvent molecules were seriously disordered and removed by the SQUEEZE routine in PLATON. In addition, PLATON analysis reveals that the 3D porous structure is composed of large voids of 1497.8 Å3 that represents approximately 26.9% per unit cell volume without guest molecules.[32]

    Stability of 1. Considering the practical application in aqueous media, the water stability of complex 1 was further investigated and a series of experiments were carried out. PXRD measurements for 1 immersed in water at room temperature for 72 h, boiling water for 24 h, HCl (pH = 4) and NaOH (pH = 10) solutions at room temperature for 72 h were carried out, respectively. All the PXRD patterns are consistent with that of pristine 1, revealing its good water stability (Figure 3a). In addition, the hydrophilic/hydrophobic properties of 1 were investigated by water contact angle measurements. As shown in Figure 3b, complex 1 exhibits slightly hydrophilic property with a water contact angle of about 82°, which may be due to the existence of strong hydrophilic acylamide group and the hydrophobic aromatic group of L2- ligand in 1. This result is similar to that observed in our previously reported work.[33, 34] Therefore, the good water stability of MOF showed great potential for developing luminescent probe in aqueous media.

    Luminescent Property. The luminescence properties of 1 and H2L ligand dispersed in water were investigated at room temperature. The H2L ligand displayed luminescence centered around 413 nm when excited by 326 nm (Figure S1). After incorporating Eu3+ cations, the ligand-centered (LC) emission exhibited a broad emission band at 467 nm and the luminous intensity of LC decreased significantly. In addition, the characteristic narrow bands of the Eu3+ ion appear at 591, 619, 662 and 698 nm ascribed to the 5D07FJ (J = 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively) transition (λex = 326 nm). The diminished LC emission in MOF 1 and the strong red luminescence under UV-light irradiation (inset of Figure S1) indicate that there is ''antenna effect''[35] (Energy migration takes place upon ligand absorption, followed by intersystem crossing S1 → T1 and antenna T1 → f transfer, and then generates f-f emission of Ln3+) in MOF luminescence process (Scheme 1). Considering the remarkable luminescence properties of 1 in the visible region, we investigated its potential application as a photoluminescence sensing material. It is worth noting that the fluorescence intensity of 1 suspension at 619 nm showed negligible change after standing for 7 days, indicating good day-to-day fluorescence stability in aqueous solution (Figure S2).

    Selective Sensing of Antibiotics. Considering the good water stability and luminescent property, we investigated the sensing ability of 1 for different antibiotics. It is noteworthy that two emission peaks at 467 (ligand-centered emission) and 619 nm (Eu3+ emission) are relatively far apart, showing different response behaviors to various antibiotics in water. In this work, the lumine-scence sensing experiments for different antibiotics, including ornidazole (ODZ), cefixime (CFX), sulfadiazine (SDZ), florfenicol (FFC), cefradine (CFD), penicillin (PCL), amoxicillin (ACL), sulfamethazine (SMZ) and thiamphenicol (THI), were carried out in aqueous media (Figure S3). As shown in Figure 4a, different antibiotics exhibit different luminescent quenching efficiency toward 1. The ODZ displays the highest quenching efficiency up to 90%. The quenching efficiencies of 1 follow the order of ODZ > CFX > SDZ > SMZ > FFC > PCL > CFD > ACL > THI (Figure 4a), suggesting it can be used as a potential luminescent sensor for highly selective recognition of ODZ.

Inset: SV plot at lower concentration under excitation at 326 nm. (d) The fluorescence emissive response of 1 for detecting ODZ in the presence of other interfering antibiotics.

    To further investigate the detection ability of 1 in detail, luminescence titration experiments were conducted. As shown in Figure 4b, the dual-emission peaks of 1 all decrease with increasing the concentration of ODZ, where slight changes in emission intensity at 467 nm and great changes in emission intensity at 619 nm were observed. Thus, the luminescence intensity ratio (I619/I467) of Eu3+ and the ligand center was used as the output signal and complex 1 as ratiometric fluorescence probe for the detection of ODZ. As shown in Figure 4c, the reduction coefficients KSV for ODZ can be calculated by the Stern-Völmer (S-V) equation: [36] I0R/IR = KSV[A] + 1, where [A] represents the molar concentration of antibiotics and I0R and IR are defined as the luminescence intensity ratios in the absence and presence of antibiotics, respectively, which are used to replace the absolute luminescenceintensity (I0 and I, respectively) in the above equation.[37] A good linear response was observed between the ratio of I619/I467 and the concentration of ODZ at low concentrations, but the relationship becomes nonlinear at higher concentrations. The nonlinear SV plot at high concentrations should be ascribed to self-absorption and/or an energy-transfer process.[33, 38] The KSV value for ODZ is 2.43 × 103 M-1. The limit of detection (LOD = 3σ/k, where σ is the standard deviation for five blank measurements and k is the slope of the calibration curve) for ODZ is 0.15 μM, which is lower than some of other MOFs (Table S3). The low LOD shows the highly sensitive sensing ability of 1 toward ODZ. To study the possible influence of other matters in the multicontaminant system, the competition experiments were performed with the coexistence of ODZ and other different antibiotics in water. As shown in Figure 4d, the emission intensity of 1 was not affected in the presence of other antibiotics, which indicated that the interference from other antibiotics could be neglected and confirmed the highly selective detecting ability of 1 toward ODZ.

    The response time and recyclability of a sensor material are also important factors for practical applications. First, the response kinetics of the probe toward ODZ was investigated. Upon the addition of 380 μL of ODZ, the fluorescence intensity of MOF 1 at 619 nm was measured with different response time. As shown in Figure S4, after adding ODZ, the fluorescence of 1 is quickly quenched by exposure to ODZ for 30 s and reach the minimum value after 2 min. The result indicated the rapid response capability of MOF 1. It is noteworthy that complex 1 could be regenerated and reused by centrifuging the dispersed suspension after sensing and washing several times with water. As shown in Figure S5, the fluorescence intensities of 1 could still be almost restored to its original level even after five cycles, which suggests good its recyclability. These experiments testified that 1 can be used as fast, selective, sensitive and recyclable luminescent sensor toward ODZ in aqueous solution.

    To understand the highly sensitive and selective ODZ detection process better, the quenching mechanism of 1 was investigated. As shown in Figure S6, the PXRD patterns are almost the same as the as-synthesized 1 after five cyclic experiments, implying the luminescence quenching is not caused by collapse of the framework. In addition, the luminescent lifetime of 1 was also tested before and after the addition of antibiotic. As shown in Figure S7, the luminescence lifetime of 1 remains almost unchanged after adding ODZ, which suggested no strong interactions between the antibiotic and 1. Therefore, the possible sensing mechanism may be attributed to photoinduced electron transfer (PET) between the ligands and the analyte molecules. In PET process, the lower the unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) energy is, the higher the electron accepting ability of the analytes will be.

    As revealed in Figure 5a and Table S4, the HOMO and LUMO orbital energies of electron-deficient antibiotics, as calculated by DFT method at the B3LYP/6-31G* level, are in good agreement with the maximum quenching efficiency observed for ODZ, but the LUMO energy trend of all antibiotics is different from the sequence of the observed quenching efficiency. The result implies that PET is not the only reason for luminescence quenching in the current system. As shown in Figure 5b, the absorption spectrum of ODZ has the greatest degree of overlapping with the excitation spectrum of 1. The competitive absorption of the excitation energy between antibiotics and MOF might be another reason for the luminescent quenching.[38] The excitation energy of MOF was partially absorbed by analyte, which reduced the energy transfer efficiency from H2L to Eu3+ and caused the fluorescence quenching. Consequently, PET and the competitive absorption of the light source energy simultaneously exist between MOF and antibiotics, which leads to high luminescence quenching.

    Selective Sensing of Cations. Inspired by the good water stabi-lity and fluorescence properties, MOF 1 was also applied to detect different metal ions in aqueous solution. In this work, a series of metal ions including Hg2+, Cd2+, Pb2+, Zn2+, Mg2+, Cu2+, Ni2+ and Ca2+ were tested. The results showed that the luminescence intensity of complex 1 was influenced by different metal ions. As illustrated in Figure 6a, most metal ions in water have an inconspicuous fluorescence intensity change effect on 1, however, the luminescence intensity of 1 was obviously increased upon the addition of Hg2+.

(d) The fluorescence emissive response of 1 for detecting Hg2+ in the presence of other metal ions.

    To further study sensing ability of 1 toward Hg2+, the lumine-scence titration experiments were performed. As demonstrated in Figure 6b, the emission intensity of 1 at 619 nm progressively enhanced with increasing the Hg2+ concentration. A good linear response was observed between the ratio of I619/I467 and the concentration of Hg2+ (Figure 6c). Detailed analysis further revealed that the emission intensity ratio linearly varied with the Hg2+ concentration in low range. The KSV value was 3.9 × 103 M-1 calculated by the SV plot. From the slope and standard error of the fitting line, the LOD was calculated to be 0.094 μM according to 3σ/k, which is better than those of reported luminescent sensors for Hg2+ detection (Table S5).

    To validate the selectivity of 1 toward Hg2+, the interference experiments of other metal ions were carried out. As shown in Figure 6d, the luminescence intensities of 1 changed slightly after the mere addition of other metal ions, whereas the luminescence was significantly enhanced with the introduction of Hg2+, indicating that 1 could selectively and effectively sense Hg2+ with little interference by other cations. Aside from good selectivity, the fast response time is another crucial factor to assess sensor practicability. The fluorescence response rate of 1 to Hg2+ in water was measured at different time. The maximum enhancement efficiency was achieved in 30 s, and then it kept almost unchanged after 2 minutes (Figure S8). The phenomenon indicated that 1 has an ultrafast fluorescence response to Hg2+, which is expected to be applied to real-time sensing. In addition, the luminescent MOF 1 can be continuously recollected from the solution by simple centrifugation and washing with distilled water. As shown in Figure S9, the luminescence intensities did not significantly decrease after five cycles, suggesting the excellent repeatability and reproducibility of 1 in the detection of Hg2+.

    The underlying mechanism of luminescence enhancement caused by Hg2+ was analyzed from the following aspects. First of all, as shown in Figure S6, the PXRD pattern of 1 was consistent with that of the sample after five cyclic experiments, so it can be excluded that the luminescence changing was caused by framework collapse of 1. It is well-known that the luminescent intensity of Ln3+ depends on the energy transfer efficiency from the ligand to Ln3+ center.[39] After more efficient intramolecular energy transfer happened in MOF, Ln3+ can be excited more effectively and produce an enhanced fluorescence. It has been reported that the energy transfer process is more effective with the addition of certain transition metal ions.[40, 43] Subsequently, the lifetime of 1 at 619 nm was increased after exposure to Hg2+, which was also consistent with the trend of the luminescence intensity change (Figure S10). Therefore, an interaction may exist between Hg2+ and MOF, which affects the energy transfer between the ligands and Eu3+ centers during excitation. The intensity ratio IEu(619)/ILigand of the 5D0/7F2 line at 619 nm to that of LC emission at 467 nm is 2.3. The intensity ratio of 1 in the presence of Hg2+ is 6.5, indicating the energy transfer is more effective in the presence of Hg2+ (Figure S11). In addition, the report has shown the detection of Hg2+ using nitrogen because mercury ions have high affinity towards N and S atoms[44]. Therefore, the mechanism of luminescence enhancement induced by Hg2+ may be attributed to that the Hg2+ ions interact with the N atoms of acylamide groups within 1 and facilitate the efficiency of energy transformation from ligands to Eu3+ ions, as depicted in Scheme 2. Eventually, to confirm this hypothesis, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) was performed (Figure 7). The XPS data exhibit that Hg2+ is found after the luminescence titration experiments of 1. The N 1s peak for 1 at 399.6 eV was shifted to 400 eV with the addition of Hg2+, suggesting the coordination of Hg2+ with the N atoms of acylamide groups in 1. In IR spectra, the characteristic C-N and N-H vibration bands of acylamide group are shifted from 1424 and 1659 cm-1 (for 1) to 1409 and 1651 cm-1 (for 1 + Hg2+), respectively, thus further supporting the above inference (Figure S12).

    In conclusion, a new luminescent 3D porous Eu(III)-organic framework has been synthesized with electron-rich π-conjugated H2L by a solvothermal method. Interestingly, this Eu-MOF showed dual luminescence and good water stability. More significantly, 1 could behave as a fast and sensitive ratiometric luminescent sensor for luminescent detection of ODZ and Hg2+ in water. The mechanism of fluorescence sensing was also investigated, indicating 1 can be used as an advanced sensory material for the detection of antibiotics and cations in water matrices.

    Materials and General Methods. All chemicals of reagent grade were obtained from commercial sources and used without further purification. Infrared spectra were recorded on a Nicolet-5700 FT-IR spectrophotometer with KBr pellets in the 4000-400 cm-1 region. The powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) patterns were recorded on an Rigaku SmartLab 9kW diffractometer with Cu Kα radiation (λ = 1.5418 Å) at room temperature. The contact angle toward water was recorded with Krüss DSA 100S instrument. The absorption spectra were recorded on a Persee T9CS UV-vis spectrophotometer. The photoluminescence spectra were measured on a Hitachi F-4700 spectrophotometer. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) was performed on a Thermo Fisher Scientific Escalab Xi+ system. The lifetime measurements were measured on an Edinburgh FLS 1000 Steady state, Fluorescence and Phosphorescence Lifetime Spectrometer.

    Synthesis of {[(CH3)2NH2][Eu(L)2(H2O)2]·xDMF}n (1). Eu(NO3)3·6H2O (44.6 mg, 0.1 mmol) and H2L (45.4 mg, 0.1 mmol) were ultrasonically dissolved in 3 mL of DMF/H2O (1:2, v/v). The mixture was sealed in a Teflon-lined stainless-steel vessel and heated at 120 ℃ for 3 days. Colorless block-shaped crystals were collected. Selected IR (KBr, cm-1): 3419, 1657, 1613, 1531, 1384, 1324, 1252, 1179, 877 and 782.

    Luminescence Sensing Experiments. Luminescence experiments of 1 toward analyte solution were recorded at room temperature. The fine-grinding sample complex 1 was dispersed in water by ultrasonication to form a uniform suspension. The titration experiments were performed by adding the selected analytes to 1 mL of 1 suspension. All titrations were carried out in triplicate to establish the consistency of the results.

    X-ray Crystallography. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction data were collected on a Bruker SMART-1000 CCD diffractometer with graphite-monochromated Mo Kα (λ = 0.71073 Å) radiation at room temperature. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined by full-matrix least-squares methods on F2 using the SHELX-2018 program.[45] The guest (CH3)2NH2+ cation and solvent molecules are highly disordered. It is difficult to locate and refine the solvent peaks. Contributions to scattering due to (CH3)2NH2+ cation and solvent molecules were removed using the SQUEEZE routine of PLATON, and then structures were refined again using the data generated.[46] The CCDC number for complex 1 is 2190437. Crystal and refinement data are summarized in Table S1, and selected bond lengths and bond angles are listed in Table S2.
