Nanomaterials properties tuned by their environment: integrating supramolecular concepts into sensing devices
Guest editors Paolo Samorì and Fabio Biscarini introduce the Nanomaterials properties tuned by their environment themed issue of Chemical Society Reviews.
Biochemical sensing with macrocyclic receptors
This review summarizes recent developments in biochemical sensing using macrocyclic receptors, from molecular recognition to device fabrication and testing.
Chemical sensing with 2D materials
During the last decade, two-dimensional materials (2DMs) have attracted great attention due to their unique chemical and physical properties, which make them appealing platforms for diverse applications in sensing of gas, metal ions as well as relevant chemical entities.
Synergy between nanomaterials and volatile organic compounds for non-invasive medical evaluation
This review provides an insight into nanomaterial-based sensors for disease diagnostics via the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
The evolution of artificial light actuators in living systems: from planar to nanostructured interfaces
Artificially enhancing light sensitivity in living cells allows control of neuronal paths or vital functions avoiding the wiring associated with the use of stimulation electrodes.
Photochemistry and photophysics of MOFs: steps towards MOF-based sensing enhancements
In combination with porosity and tunability, light harvesting, energy transfer, and photocatalysis, are facets crucial for engineering of MOF-based sensors.
Sensing and capture of toxic and hazardous gases and vapors by metal–organic frameworks
This review summaries recent progress in the luminescent detection and adsorptive removal of harmful gases and vapors by metal–organic frameworks, as well as the principles and strategies guiding the design of these materials.
Nanomaterial-based devices for point-of-care diagnostic applications
In this review, we have discussed the capabilities of nanomaterials for point-of-care (PoC) diagnostics and explained how these materials can help to strengthen, miniaturize and improve the quality of diagnostic devices.
Environmentally responsive plasmonic nanoassemblies for biosensing
Assemblies of plasmonic nanoparticles enable new modalities for biosensing.
