Abstract

Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) was labelled using a fluorogen with an aggregation-induced emission feature by direct polymerization; the label served as a fluorogenic probe that reveals fine details in the thermal transitions in the aqueous solution of the polymer; the working mode was readily tuned between non-monotonic and monotonic by changing the labelling degree of the polymer.
