The contamination of natural resources by human activity can have severe socio-economical impacts. Conventional methods of environmental analysis can be significantly improved by the development of portable microscale technologies for remote/field sensing. A gold nanoparticle-based lab-on-a-chip device was developed for the rapid, in-field detection and quantification of mercury in aquatic environments. Rhodamine 6G functionalized gold nanoparticles allowed the on-chip fluorescence detection of mercury in aqueous samples with a limit of detection of 7 nM.
