Developing new conjugated polymeric microporous architectures as solid state sensors for detection of harmful nitroaromatic derivatives
Project status: Ongoing
About Objectives Results Team Contact

The general objective of the current project is to develop synthetic methods and to optimize the construction of conjugated microporous polymer (CMPs) architectures based on multifunctionalized triphenylamine (TPA) building blocks as solid-state sensors for harmful nitroaromatic compounds electrochemical/ fluorescent detection. The main effort of this work will be dedicated to analysis and adjustment of particular molecular determinants governing the fine tuning of the nanoscale polymer structure (skeleton and pores), as well as of tuning their performance as solid-state sensors.

Scientific specific objectives of the project are:

Objective 1. Synthesis and characterization of oligomers with branched, star and dendrimer structures as precursors.

Objective 2. Synthesis of the CMPs by electropolymerization and emulsion polymerization of the branched, star or dendrimer structures and their characterization.

Objective 3. Porosity evaluation and surface morphology evaluation.

Objective 4. Test the electrochemical/fluorescence detection efficiency of the obtained CMPs against the nitro-aromatic derivatives.

Objective 5. Critical assessment of the project results and writing of the final report.
