Only shortlisted candidates will be called for the interview. Selected candidates will be intimated by email. No TA/DA will be paid for appearing in the interview.

Project involved:

The present proposal focuses on design, synthesis and spectral characterization of fluoreseien and rhodamine derivatives and
studying their absorption and emission properties for fluorimetric/colorimetric sensing of Cu, Fe and Zn in blood serum and cell lines.
The designing of the probes involves the spirolactam ring opening basis (fluorimetric/colorimetric OFF-ON mode). Various derivatives of rhodamine and fluoreseien are synthesized with various amines, aldehyde and other functional bearing groups. Then they are characterized by >H and 13C NMR and ESI-MS techniques. Finally their absorbance and emission properties have been studied inorder to develop fluorescence /colorimetric protocols for Cu, Fe and Zn. Then these probes have been used for fluorimetric/colorimetric determination of Cu, Fe and Zn in blood serum. Then these probes are tested for the fluorescence imaging of the above said metals in various cultured cell lines.
