Organic-inorganic hybrid nanomaterials offer extremely valuable tools for monitoring many types of analytes in solution. Within this framework, aptamer-based nanomaterials for heavy metal detection are still very scarce. Herein, a novel sensing nanoprobe for the selective and sensitive detection of As(III) based on the combination of aptamers with mesoporous silica nanoparticles has been developed. The efficiency of the sensor is demonstrated in environmental conditions, showing a great potential in As(III) monitoring assays.
