A dynamic covalent imine gel as a luminescent sensor

Author affiliations


A novel dynamic covalent gel has been prepared via the imine bond formation reaction of tetraamine building blocks with luminescent tetraphenylethene tetraaldehyde units. The gel shows high hierarchical porosity (SBET = 512 m2 g−1) and remarkable aggregation-induced emission enhancement, which has been demonstrated to be a selective sensor.
