Due to clinical importance, detection of dopamine by using easy and rapid method is still ongoing challenge. Here we present a simple and quite efficient method for dopamine (DA) detection in alkalescent medium using in situ prepared Ru(II) complex and sodium dodecyl benzyl sulfonate (SDBS) as highly luminescent luminophore. The luminescence enhancement in the Ru(II) complex (Ru-CIP) has been observed in the miceller medium formed by SDBS. The capability to successively quench the luminescence intensity has been tested for variety of molecules and only dopamine as analyte found to be able to quench luminescence effectively. Hence selective quenching of luminescence by dopamine was used as a tool to detect dopamine and two linear concentration ranges has been established from 0.1 µM to 1µM and from 2 µM to 10 µM with limit of detection (LOD) is 6.6 nM (S/N = 3). Spectral evidence showed that luminescence quenching mechanism arose via Forster resonance energy transfer (FRET) among oxidized DA (i.e. DA quinone) and in situ generated Ru-CIP and SDBS assembly. Due to ultra sensitivity and high selectivity of the prescribed (Ru-CIP-SDBS) luminescent probe has a strong potential for practical analytical application in clinical diagnosis.
