Optical reporting by conjugated polymers via conformational changes
2010 (English)In: Advanced fluoroscence reporters in dhemistry and biology II / [ed] Demchenko, Alexander P., Springer Publishing Company, 2010, 1, 472- p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This volume demonstrates the novel possibilities in sensing and imaging offered by the assembly of organic dyes into nanoparticles and nanocomposites and by the application of strongly fluorescent noble metal clusters and conjugated polymers. Its 14 chapters, written by top experts in this field, provide in-depth information on the coupling of organic dyes to different molecular and supramolecular structures, on their incorporation into polymeric nanoparticles and on the nanostructures that can be formed by some of the dyes. Bright and photostable several-atom clusters of gold and silver are examined. Finally, the revolutionary changes in sensing technologies attending the advent of conjugated polmyers and the advances in their application are discussed.
