Extremely fast and highly selective detection of nitroaromatic explosive vapours using fluorescent polymer thin films

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel sensing material based on pyrene doped polyethersulfone worm-like structured thin film is developed using a facile technique for detection of nitroaromatic explosive vapours. The formation of π–π stacking in the thin fluorescent film allows a highly sensitive fluorescence quenching which is detectable by the naked eye in a response time of a few seconds.
