25_17b/2013Sensors: Anisotropically Luminescent Hydrogels Containing Magnetically-Aligned MWCNTs-Eu(III) Hybrids (Adv. Mater. 17/2013)

Anisotropic glow!! An anisotropically-luminescent hydrogel containing an Eu(III)-MWCNTs hybrid is prepared, aligning the tubular frameworks under the influence of a 10T magnetic field. Thermal triggering of the emission properties of the material is achieved, enabling a turn “on/off” behaviour. Further details can be found in the article by Davide Bonifazi and co-workers on page 2462.
