Method Makes Generic Polymers Luminescent

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A Hokkaido University research team has developed a method to give luminescent properties to generic polymers, potentially transforming existing commodity polymers into more valuable functional materials. The technique is based on mechanical force, bypassing sophisticated organic synthetic methods for the preparation of luminescent polymers — which are used in applications such as organic lasers (lasing), solar cells, sensors, and bioimaging. The preparation of luminescent polymers commonly requires multiple chemical synthesis steps, which are time and labor intensive, said Hajime...Read full article
