Schiff bases, spectroscopy, pesticides,


Supports involving tetrazole (o/m/p-F-Tet-1H) were prepared to detect pesticides. This novel te-trazole including fluorine in different positions was attached to nanoparticles (2AEPS-(o/m/p-F-Tet-1H)) by a condensation method. Primarily, the tetrazole derivatives were characterized by 1H-NMR,13C-NMR and LC-MS. Then, nanoparticles were prepared by a condensation method in non-aqueous medium and characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, gel permeation chromatography. The enzymatic properties of immobilized acetylcholinesterase (AChE) were investigated for the determination of phosmet. This research is the first example.
