There are some new peaks at the ranges of 1400-1500 [cm.sup.-1] and 700-900 [cm.sup.-1] in FT-IR and several peaks at the range 7-10 ppm in [sup.1]H NMR caused by 8-hydroxyquinoline.
On the contrary, coordination of fluoride anion with 8-hydroxyquinoline containing azomethine imine 4 is accompanied by a pronounced "naked-eye" effect (change in solution color from yellow to bright purple) due to the appearance of a new absorption band at 555 nm (Figure 5(a)).

A different fabrication technique in which 8-hydroxyquinoline (HQ) and [Alq.sub.3] were dissolved in an ethanol/water solution and then exposed to high-intensity ultrasound irradiation resulted in the formation of well-defined [Alq.sub.3] nanoflowers ([alpha]-[Alq.sub.3]) [18].
8-hydroxyquinoline (50 mg/L medium) was added to tryptic soya agar (10%) and inoculated with tested isolates.
