Abstract Quantum-dots-doped covalent organic frameworks in a molecularly imprinted network (QDs-doped COFs@MIP) were developed for detection of nereistoxin (NRT)-related insecticide in tap water. The preparation of QDs-doped COFs@MIP was easy to accomplish via one-pot synthesis at room temperature. QDs-doped COFs@MIP quenched by targeting thiosultap due to the photoinduced charge transfer. A Brunauer–Emmett–Teller surface area of 186.20 m2 g−1 and a maximum adsorption capacity of 771 mg g−1 of the QDs-doped COFs@MIP exhibited good selectivity and adsorption capacity. Direct fluorescence determination was established over the range 5–100 μg L−1 (R2 = 0.9959) with a detection limit of 1.60 μg L−1. Furthermore, 86.5–106.5% recoveries of spiked tap water were achieved. The determination system was feasible for tracing the NRT-related insecticide with high accuracy and good repeatability and reproducibility. Keywords Two modalities determination .

Introduction Nereistoxin (NRT)-related insecticides, including thiosultap, cartap, thiocyclam, bensultap, and monosultap, were widely applied in agriculture pest management due to its low toxicity and high insecticidal activity [1]. Unfortunately, the overuse and/or misuse of NRT-related insecticides has caused food safety and environmental issues, and human health concerns [2, 3]. The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture has specified maximum residue limits (MRL) for NRT-related insecticide residues, such as the MRL of thiosultap in cabbage which is 0.5 mg kg−1. The common methods for NRT-related insecti-

cide detection are mainly instrumental analysis such as liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry [4, 5] and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry [6, 7] as they are high in sensitivity and accuracy. However, the inevitable shortcomings inherent in instrumental analysis such as its cost, complicated pretreatment steps, in-laboratory analysis, and skilled manpower limit their further application [8]. Therefore, a simple, environmentally friendly, low-cost, and convenient method for NRT-related insecticide identification at trace levels is particularly important. Recently, the advancement
