The application of fluorescent probe-enzyme systems to detection of water pollution by insecticides was studied to determine the scientific and practical feasibility of this new concept. Many suitable fluorescent probe molecules can be synthesized. In combination with serum cholinesterase enzyme, these fluorescent probe-enzyme systems give a significant spectroscopic response in the presence of insecticides. A total of 18 new candidate fluorescent probe molecules were synthesized. Of those tested, 4 are useful probe molecules. (Knapp-USGS) (WRSIC abstract)
