    Fluorescent Chemosensing and Bioimaging provide detailed information on fluorescent chemosensor design strategies, sensing mechanisms, and potential applications. Fluorescent chemosensors are widely employed for the detection of environmentally and/or biologically important species because of their advantages of low cost, simplicity, high sensitivity, real-time monitoring, versatility, and high temporal and spatial resolution. Starting from the fundamentals of fluorescence spectroscopy and theoretical aspects of designing fluorescent chemosensors, this book has several chapters contributed by internationally renowned researchers on various fluorophores/mechanisms employed in fluorescent chemosensors design including their potential applications in sensing and bioimaging.

    The book offers comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including:

    • Basics of fluorescence spectroscopy
    • Designing of fluorescent chemosensors
    • Sensing mechanisms
    • Chemodosimeters for metal ions and anions
    • Fluorescent chemosensor arrays
    • Fluorescent molecular logic gate
    • Probes detecting bacteria and biomolecules
    • Fluorescent indicator displacement assays
    • Sensing with covalent-organic frameworks
    • Probes detecting small molecules in the gas phase
    • Two-photon fluorescent chemosensors
    • Bioimaging applications

    This book serves as a reference book for scientific investigators involved in fluorescence-based analytical work. This book is an ideal companion for students (undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate), researchers, and faculty in academia interested in fluorescent chemosensing and bioimaging. The fluorescence industry interested in bioimaging and/or fabricating fluorescent-based devices can also refer to this book.
