Photoluminescence detection of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) binding on diatom frustule biosilica functionalized with an anti-TNT monoclonal antibody fragment.
Corvallis, United States. In Biosens Bioelectron, Feb 2016
The binding and detection were selective for TNT and TNB (trinitrobenzene) but not RDX (hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine) or 2,6-DNT (2,6-dinitrotoluene).
Multichannel Detection and Differentiation of Explosives with a Quantum Dot Array.
London, United Kingdom. In Acs Nano, Dec 2015
Here, five explosives are detected and differentiated using quantum dots as luminescent probes in a multichannel platform: 2,4-dinitrotoluene (DNT), 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), tetryl (2,4,6-trinitrophenylmethylnitramine), cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine (RDX), and pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN).
Harnessing microbial gene pools to remediate persistent organic pollutants using genetically modified plants-a viable technology?
York, United Kingdom. In J Exp Bot, Nov 2015
Examples include plants developed to degrade 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), trichloroethylene (TCE), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
Microbial degradation of explosives: biotransformation versus mineralization.
Québec, Canada. In Appl Microbiol Biotechnol, 2000
The non-aromatic cyclic nitramine explosives hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) and octahydro-1,3,5,7-tetranitro-1,3,5,7-tetrazocine (HMX) lack the electronic stability enjoyed by TNT or its transformed products.
