A series of nuclear sensors were designed to assess the chemistry within the nanopores of a porous material. The nuclear sensors of varying size, charge, and hydrophobicity were exposed to hollow silica shells (HSS) at varying pH. Uptake and release kinetics were studied over a 24 h period at room temperature. Preliminary study indicate positively charged nuclear sensors were selectively and rapidly (within 10 min) absorbed by the HSS at pH 7 to 9. PALS showed there were two types of pores (1.7...[Show more]
