AN2613: Analysis and characterization of fluorescent nanomaterials by FFF-MALS-FD

Multi-functional Oligothiophene

Recent reports by the FDA and the European Union acknowledge the lack of robust characterization methods for nanomaterials as a major limiting factor to the final establishment of nanotechnologies. We present here results indicating that field-flow fractionation with online multi-angle light scattering and fluorescence detection (FFF-MALS-FD) can become an unparalleled technique for the analysis and optical characterization of novel structured fluorescent nanomaterials.
