A coordination polymer (CP) based nanoprobe is described for colorimetric and fluorometric (dual mode) determination of ferric ion. The method is making use of a nanosized Gd(III)−5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-carboxyphenyl)porphyrin coordination polymer that was prepared by a single-step hydrothermal procedure. The nanoprobe is monodisperse and has uniform size and good water solubility. It also exhibits strong fluorescence and magnetic resonance response. On exposure to Fe(III), the color of the solution changes from red to brown as the concentration of Fe(III) exceed 5 μM. Similarly, the red fluorescence of the probe (with excitation/emission peaks at 420/675 nm) decreases as concentrations of Fe(III) increase from 0.5 to 100 μM. The limit of detection is 98 nM in the fluorometric mode. The assay was applied to the determination of Fe(III) in fetal bovine serum samples.
