Supplementary Material

As depicted in the Figure S1 of supplemental data (see Supplementary Material available online at doi:4061.2011/607861), the effect of TFE on the solubility of Cu2+ and the concentration of H2O2 was determined. Results clearly demonstrated that the main effect of TFE on the system is only to quench the DCF fluorescence intensity. Neither was the solubility of Cu2+ ions nor the formation of H2O2 affected by TFE.
