In this paper, we describe a turn-on fluorescent probe for Zn(2+) and Cd(2+) ion detection and discrimination. This probe, N'-bis-(N,N-di-(2-pyridylmethyl)-ethane-1,2-diamine)-perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic-diimide (PDI-DIDPA), exhibits very low fluorescence at pH above 6.0 due to the photo-induced electron transfer (PET) process from 2-pyridylmethyl-amine (DPA) to perylene tetracarboxylic diimide (PDI). Zn(2+) and Cd(2+) can chelate PDI-DIDPA to form a stable complex at pH 6.0-7.0 and 9.0 respectively, and inhibit the PET process, which result in the fluorescence recovery of PDI-DIDPA. This fluorescence turn-on behavior allows the detection of Zn(2+) in the range of 0.1-4.0 μM and Cd(2+) in the range of 0.1-5.0 μM. The limit of detection for Zn(2+) and Cd(2+) is as low as 32 nM and 48 nM. The high selectivity, high sensitivity and easy operation make this probe suitable for the rapid detection of Zn(2+) and Cd(2+) respectively. The different response of PDI-DIDPA to Zn(2+) and Cd(2+) at different pH makes it possible to discriminate Zn(2+) and Cd(2+) by simply adjusting the pH of the working solution.
