Abstract

original image

Tiny flowers: A conceptually new method for fabricating polymer/Prussian blue (PB) hybrid flowers with ultrathin petals by using a CAICP technique has been developed. The PB hybrid flowers exhibit enhanced thermal stability, emit deep-blue light, and are electrochemically active. Their intriguing microstructure and enhanced structure-dependent properties make them potentially useful in nanodevices, biosensors, and photoluminescent devices.
