Real-time Detection Of Toxic Copper In Environment Monitoring And Public Health

Copper is an essential element in the environment and human body, but at the same time, exposure to high concentrations of Cu2+ ions will potentially lead to acute toxicity and various neurodegenerative diseases. Specifically, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set the safe limit of Cu2+ concentration in drinking water to be 1.3 ppm (~20 μM). Therefore, for the concern of public health, it is of urgent demand for developing highly sensitive, selective, and low-cost Cu2+ sensors in environmental...
