Visual detection of carbonate ions by inverse opal photonic crystal polymers in aqueous solution

Abstract

This communication demonstrates a facile method to detect CO32− by the naked eye through color change based on the pH dependence of inverse opal photonic crystal polymer films. These films are highly sensitive only to a certain range of pH values that make them less disturbed by other anions.
