ppoCongratulations to our Ph.D. student Cosimo Micheletti and to our grant holder Francesco Ventura for their scientific publication entitled “Nanoporous-crystalline and amorphous films of PPO including off-on vapochromic fluorescent 7-hydroxy coumarin guests” in Polymer journal. The study examines the preparation of nanoporous-crystalline and amorphous films of poly(2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene)oxide (PPO) containing 7-hydroxy coumarin (i.e., umbelliferone) for the detection of chloroform vapours.
