Pyrene-1-butyric acid-doped polyaniline for fluorescence quenching-based oxygen sensing

The synthesis of pyrene-1-butyric acid (PBA)-doped polyaniline (PANI) and its oxygen sensing properties, through fluorescence quenching, are reported. The structures of both undoped PANI (emeraldine) and PBA-doped PANI are investigated by means of Fourier Transform InfraRed (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The O2 sensing capability of the synthesized layer is… CONTINUE READING
