This work presents a simple, fast, disposable and low-cost colorimetric sensor for the simultaneous detection of Fe(III) and Al(III). It is obtained by fixing a classical dye, Alizarin Red S, on an inert solid support, i.e., a product of the washing powder market known as “Colour Catcher®” (here named under the acronym CC) generally used in the washing machine to prevent colour run problems. The device so obtained is called Aliz-CC@. Fe(III) and Al(III) interaction with the Alizarin Red S-based sensor, generates a change in the adsorption spectra of the fixed dye, allowing to highlight a naked-eye colour change. The relationship between the Fe(III) and Al(III) content and the colour change profiles of the sensor, is provided by using Partial Least Squares regression (PLS).

Abstract

This work presents a simple, fast, disposable and low-cost colorimetric sensor for the simultaneous detection of Fe(III) and Al(III). It is obtained by fixing a classical dye, Alizarin Red S, on an inert solid support, i.e., a product of the washing powder market known as “Colour Catcher®” (here named under the acronym CC) generally used in the washing machine to prevent colour run problems. The device so obtained is called Aliz-CC@. Fe(III) and Al(III) interaction with the Alizarin Red S-based sensor, generates a change in the adsorption spectra of the fixed dye, allowing to highlight a naked-eye colour change. The relationship between the Fe(III) and Al(III) content and the colour change profiles of the sensor, is provided by using Partial Least Squares regression (PLS).
