In order to study potential application of the Zn[Q.sub.2]@BioMOF1(G) as a luminophore in a sensor, luminescence was measured after treating Zn[Q.sub.2]@BioMOF1(S) with dissolved oxygen.
SPR arises by the collective oscillation of electrons on the metal nanoparticles, which can have either beneficial or deleterious effect depending on the position of the SPR peak and the distance of the luminophore from the metal surface [8, 9].
The paint employed in this study consisted of Ruphen as the luminophore, polyacrylic acid as the binder, and ethanol as the solvent.
Thus, the light intensity available to excite the reference luminophore changes as well, causing in turn a change in the luminescence intensity of the reference, allowing for indirect measurement of the sensor response.

NADPH oxidase (NOX--EC.1.6.3.1) activity was measured by luminescence assay using lucigenin as a luminophore. One unit of NOX activity was defined as the amount of enzyme required to release 1nmol of [O.sub.2.sup.-] per minute.
After manual dismantling of printed circuit boards, speakers, wires, protective metal casing, deflection system, and electron gun, CRT screens are cut off the cone along the line of welding using the diamond wheel; luminophore is cleaned away by the laboratory vacuum cleaner; screens are washed of process contaminations and dried to prepare for crushing and milling.
Briefly, oxygen acts as a dynamic fluorescence quencher of a luminophore in a polymer matrix.
This work is important for the study of new and efficient catalysts and luminophore for chemiluminescent reactions and promoting the steps towards its application in various fields.
To enable such a change, the design integrates a chromophore or luminophore into the receptor, either by covalent or non-covalent attachment.
For example, light emission can be observed at an electrode placed in contact with an aqueous solution containing luminophore Ru(bpy)32+ (ruthenium (II) tris(2,2'-bipyridine) and an ECL coreactant tripropylamine (TPrA) upon anodic potential scanning.
The luminophore of the photoprotein-based bioluminescence systems of hydrozoans and ctenophores is coelenterazine (Anctil and Shimomura, 1984; Shimomura, 1985).
