ECL of Nanomaterials: Novel Materials, Detection Strategies and Applications
The latest advances in electrochemiluminescent nanomaterials for (bio)analytical applications are discussed. The systems include carbon-based nanomaterials (carbon nanotubes, graphene), metal nanoparticles, quantum dots, polymer dots and composites/hybrids. Specific examples of cutting-edge materials and innovative detection strategies to improve the analytical and bioanalytical capabilities of electrochemiluminescence, especially the limit of detection, dynamic range and selectivity, are considered. Finally, challenges and perspectives are discussed.
