Artifıcial Antibodies: Development of Micro-Fluidic Sensors for The Detection of Environmental Contaminants and Apply to Mathematical Models

Environmental pollutants carried by water and air are one of the most important problems that destroy resources today. Herein, a proof-of-concept of a new colorimetric-fluorescent environmental-medical sensor is demonstrated by testing two hypotheses: (1) by combining artificial receptors with microfluidics, sensors based on color changes for acrolein and formaldehyde molecules can be developed, and (2) using microfluidics designed with carbon quantum dots (NH2-CQD) receptors, rapid gas-liquid diffusion can be detected instantaneously. For this purpose, imine synthesis, which enables the detection of aldehyde derivatives in liquid-gas phases, was carried out with NH2-CQDs on a sensor. These novel receptors operating more economically, sustainably, and specific than conventional methods.
