Preparation and characterization of europium(III), terbium(III), samarium(III), and dysprosium(III) polystyrene nanoparticle labels with lanthanide-specific fluorescence properties has been presented. Emulsion copolymerization of styrene and acrylic acid was used to synthesize uniform-sized nanoparticles approximately 45 nm in diameter. Europium(III) and(More)
Preparation, characterisation and application of europium(III) chelate-incorporated polystyrene-acrylic acid (AAc) nanoparticle labels featuring diverse AAc proportions is described. Emulsion copolymerisation of styrene and AAc was used to synthesise uniform-sized nanoparticles, approximately 50 nm in diameter. The structural, fluorescence and functional(More)
Linear and crosslinked copolymers based on N-isopropylacrylamide, NIPAAm, containing aromatic esters, have been synthesised. Vinyl benzoate and cinnamoyloxyethyl methacrylate have been used as aromatic comonomers. Certain aromatic esters are known of their capability to form molecular complexes with xanthines and thus, the purpose was to build up thermally(More)
