Portable devices possess powerful application prospects in on-site sensing without the limitation of bulky instruments. Given the relevance of pesticides to food safety, we herein fabricated a robust gold nanocluster (AuNC)-based hydrogel test kit for precisely quantified chlorpyrifos by using a three-dimensional (3D) printed subsidiary device. In this work, the fluorescence of AuNC-based hydrogel could be efficiently quenched by cobalt oxyhydroxide nanoflakes (CoOOH NFs) through the Förster resonance energy transfer effect. Chlorpyrifos as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor controls the enzymatic hydrolysis reaction and further regulates the production of thiocholine that could decompose CoOOH nanoflakes into Co2+, resulting in the fluorescence response of AuNC-based hydrogel. By using a homemade subsidiary device and smartphone, the fluorescence color was transformed into digital information, achieving the on-site quantitative detection of chlorpyrifos with the limit of detection of 0.59 ng ml−1. Owing to specific AuNC signatures and hydrogel encapsulation, the proposed fluorescence hydrogel test kit displayed high sensitivity, good selectivity, and anti-interference capability in a real sample analysis, providing great potential in on-site applications.
