A superamplification effect in the detection of explosives by a fluorescent hyperbranched poly(silylenephenylene) with aggregation-enhanced emission characteristics

Abstract

Light emission of a hyperbranched poly(silylenephenylene) is quenched exponentially by picric acid, with quenching constant up to ∼1.5 × 105 L mol−1. This superamplification effect makes the polymer a highly sensitive chemosensor for explosive detection.
