Researchers from South China University of Technology Detail New Studies and Findings in the Area of Nanosheets

February 28, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators publish new report on Nanosheets. According to news reporting out of Guangdong, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Fluorescent organic hybrid nanosheets were generated by crystallization of polymers capped with luminogenic. molecules exhibiting aggregation-induced emission characteristics (ATE). During. crystallization of polymers, AIE molecules were expelled out of lamellar crystals of polymers, and finally resided on the surface."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the South China University of Technology, "The fluorescent nanosheets with dangling AIE molecules showed sensitive and specific response to. explosives."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Such polymer crystallization-induced fluorescent nanomaterials offers a unique avenue to fabricate functional nanomaterials with AIE molecule-enriched domains for potential applications in nanodevices, biological engineering, and so on."
