Resonance Light Scattering Study on the Formation of a Manganese (II) Coordination Supramolecular Polymer and Its Analytical Application
The formation of a manganese (II) coordination supramolecular polymer was studied by resonance light scattering spectra for manganese (II) detection. Bis-sulfosalophen (a ditopic tetradentate Schiff base ligand) and bis-phenanthroline-glutaraldehyde (a ditopic bidentate ligand) were prepared for the construction of the supramolecular polymer. In a procedure of manganese (II) detection, manganese (II) ion reacts with bis-sulfosalophen to form a binuclear manganese (II) complex. The binuclear complex then self-assembles with bis-phenanthroline-glutaraldehyde to form the supramolecular polymer, resulting in the production of strong resonance light scattering signal. The amount of manganese was detected by measuring the resonance light scattering intensity. Under optimal conditions, a linear range was found to be 0.5–50.0 ng/mL, with a detection limit of 0.1 ng/mL. The method has been successfully applied to determine manganese in vegetable and tea samples with relative standard deviations of less than 5% and recoveries of 95.8–105.7%.
