A new and high potential colorimetric sensor for the selective recognition and monitoring of oxalic acid (OA) in aqueous samples has been developed based on the interaction between OA and unmodified silver nanoparticles (AgNPs). The fresh synthesized silver nanoparticles are yellowishbrown in color due to the intense SPR absorption band. It was found that AgNPs were aggregated in the presence of oxalic acid, resulting in a considerable decrease in the intensity of the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) absorption band of AgNPs and formation of new peak in at longer wavelengths. So, we propose a simple, cost effective, rapid and selective colorimetric sensor for the detection of oxalic acid using AgNPs in aqueous media. Results demonstrated that other similar organic acids cannot change the color of AgNPs solution in the same conditions, suggesting the selectivity of the proposed method toward OA. The color change was monitored by naked eye and UV-Vis spectrophotometer. Also, the effect of the concentration of oxalic acid to the color change of AgNPs was considered and the LOD for OA was estimated 3.3 μM. The proposed method has been successfully used for the determination of oxalic acid in human urine samples.

Silver nanoparticles-tragacanth gel as a green membrane for effective extraction and determination of capecitabine
Hajizadeh, Salahaddin; Farhadi, Khalil; Molaei, Rahim; Forough, Mehrdad (Wiley, 2020-07-01)
A novel eco-friendly and effective electromembrane extraction method combining high-performance liquid chromatography with UV detection was developed for the enrichment and determination of capecitabine. Tragacanth-silver nanoparticles conjugated gel was prepared by dissolving the tragacanth powder in synthesized silver nanoparticles solution and was used as a green membrane in electromembrane extraction. The porosity and presence of silver nanoparticles in the gel were characterized by field emission scann...
Silver nanoparticles in the presence of Ca2+ as a selective and sensitive probe for the colorimetric detection of cysteine
Hajizadeh, Salahaddin; Farhadi, Khalil; Forough, Mehrdad; Molaei, Rahim (2012-06-01)
A sensitive and selective cysteine colorimeric sensor based on the interaction between cysteine, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and calcium ions has been developed. In the presence of Ca2+ and NaCl, cysteine could rapidly induce the aggregation of AgNPs, thereby resulting in a yellow-to-red color change. The presence of 10 mM NaCl in the samples decreases the electrostatic repulsion and accelerates the aggregation of AgNPs. Results demonstrated that other amino acids cannot change the color of AgNPs solution ...
Silver nanoparticle-doped polyvinyl alcohol coating as a medium for surface-enhanced Raman scattering analysis
Karabicak, Seher; Kaya, Murat; Vo-Dinh, Tuan; Volkan, Mürvet (American Scientific Publishers, 2008-02-01)
A simple polymer substrate for inducing Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) has been investigated. This SERS substrate consists of a solid support, such as a glass slide covered with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) impregnated with fine silver nanoparticles. The preparation simply involves mixing aqueous PVA polymer with solid AgNO3 to produce a solution that can be easily spin coated on the glass substrate and dried to obtain a hard translucent coating. Aqueous solution of FeSO4 center dot 7H(2)O was used to ...
Highly sensitive and selective colorimetric probe for determination of L-cysteine in aqueous media based on Ag/Pd bimetallic nanoparticles
Farhadi, Khalil; Forough, Mehrdad; Pourhossein, Atefeh; Molaei, Rahim (2014-10-01)
The interaction between Ag/Pd bimetallic nanoparticles and cysteine was introduced as a new and high potential colorimetric probe for the selective, sensitive and low-cost recognition and monitoring of cysteine in aqueous samples. In the presence of NaCl, cysteine was able to induce the aggregation of Ag/Pd bimetallic nanoparticles thereby resulting in a change in yellowish-brown color of the Ag/Pd colloid to green. The presence of 6.6 mM NaCl in the samples decreases the electrostatic repulsion and acceler...
Silver nanoparticles as a cyanide colorimetric sensor in aqueous media
Hajizadeh, Salahaddin; Farhadi, Khalil; Forough, Mehrdad; Sabzi, Reza Emamali (2011-11-01)
The interaction between aqueous colloidal silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and cyanide ions was studied using UV-Vis absorption and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) techniques. It was found that AgNPs were oxidized by dissolved oxygen in the presence of cyanide ions, resulting in a considerable decrease in the intensity of the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) absorption band of AgNPs. So, we propose a simple, cost effective, rapid, sensitive and selective colorimetric sensor for the detection of cyanide using ...
