Abstract

Use of a fluorescent organic molecule consisting of binaphthyl functionalized with donor-acceptor substituted stilbenes for the detection of dinitrotoluene (DNT) and trinitrotoluene (TNT) vapors and enhancement in its sensing efficiency via self-assembly assisted morphology tuning are described.
