Redox-sensitive colorimetric polyaniline nanoprobes synthesized by a solvent-shift process
polyaniline, solvent-shifting, cancer, colorimetric, nanoprobe
We have synthesized water-stable polyaniline nanoparticles coated with triarmed polyethylene glycol chains using a solvent-shift method and confirmed their colloidal size and aqueous solubility. Furthermore, we have demonstrated that the polyaniline nanoparticles can be doped with biological dopants to produce distinct color changes allowing the detection of live cancer cells.
