Abstract

original image

Affinity and selectivity: The online detection of the explosive triacetone triperoxide (TATP) is an utmost challenge in security research. The great number of events wherein TATP was involved underlines the significance of solutions to trace that particular explosive material. New optimized functionalized polyphenylene dendrimers (see structure) have been synthesized that can be used as powerful affinity systems to trace TATP on a ppb level.
