22_18/2012Immunosensors: Electrogenerated Chemiluminescence from a Phenyleneethynylene Derivative and its Ultrasensitive Immunosensing Application Using a Nanotubular Mesoporous Pt–Ag Alloy for Signal Amplification (Adv. Funct. Mater. 18/2012)

The electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL) of a novel phenyleneethynylene derivative (4,4'-(2,5-di - me thoxy-1,4-phenylene)bis(ethyne-2,1-diyl) dibenzoic acid) that has carboxylic acid groups at the para positions in aqueous solution is studied and its first immunosensing application are reported. On page 3899, Jinghua Yu and co-workers report that the nano tubular mesoporous Pt–Ag alloy nanoparticles are used in the ECL immunosensor as a signal amplification carrier to obtain ultrasensitive ECL analysis.
