Abstract: In the present work, we have used hydrothermally synthesized in situ functionalized MoS2-QDs for a sensitive (limit of detection ~ 2.06 µM) and selective detection of Fe3+ ions. A detailed study of fluorescence quenching behavior for MoS2-QDs in the presence of Fe3+ ions has been performed using the Stern�Volmer plot, modified Stern�Volmer plot, and time-resolved photoluminescence measurements. Absorption based titration spectra and time-resolved photoluminescence measurements confirmed the fluorescence quenching is static with three decay times originated from the three different fluorescing sites. Interestingly, it is found that emission spectra consist of three bands at positions ~ 450 nm (P1, ~ 2.76 eV), ~ 475 nm (P2, ~ 2.61 eV), and ~ 503 nm (P3, ~ 2.46 eV). These peaks show a systematic quenching with the increasing concentration of Fe3+ ions. Quenching constants corresponding to these emission bands are found of the order of ~ 103 M�1. Large values of bimolecular quenching constants (~ 1011 M�1 s�1) suggest a strong binding interaction between MoS2-QDs and Fe3+ ions. Furthermore, to understand the fluorescence quenching of MoS2-QDs in the presence of Fe3+ ions, a ground-state complex formation-based mechanism has been proposed and elucidated in detail.
