In this study, newly developed copper modified CN composites were prepared and tested as a fluorescence sensor for detection of nitrate ions (NO3-). The structure and chemical properties of CN and copper modified CN composites were investigated via Xray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infra-red (FTIR), diffuse reflectance ultraviolet-visible (DR UV-Vis) and fluorescence spectroscopies. Three emission sites represented as C=N, C=O and C-N moieties were suggested to contribute as sensing sites in CN and copper modified CN composites. The sensing capabilities of CN and copper modified CN composites toward NO3- in the range of 300 to 1800 μM were determined via a quenching technique. The quenching efficiencies (KSV) of CN and copper modified CN composites were obtained from the Stern-Volmer plot. Among three emission peaks of CN, C=N sites were found to be the most sensitive site having the strongest interaction with NO3-. By addition of Cu(0.5 mol%), the KSV of CN was improved from 2.11 x 10-4 to 5.27 x 10-4 μM-1. This study showed that with the addition of copper as modifier, the performance of CN can be improved and the composite can be used as potential fluorescence sensor for the detection of NO3-.
