Thermoresponsive polymeric temperature sensors with broad sensing regimes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Polymeric temperature sensors with a broad sensing regime in aqueous solution have been developed. Two strategies, namely including a monomer gradient within the polymer chain and incorporation of highly polar hydroxyl functional comonomers, are evaluated to obtain a broader sensing regime of the thermometer, which is mostly limited to 10 °C for LCST-type polymers.
