Nanosensors based on nanoparticles immobilized on stimuli responsive polymer brushes
The invention is directed to a sensor comprising: - a substrate (1); - a polymer brush (4) formed of polymer molecules anchored by a first end to a surface of the substrate and having a second, free end located on a terminal end opposite to the first end; - nanoparticles (5) fixed to the second end of the polymer brush. The invention is further directed to a method for obtaining said sensor and the use of the sensor for detecting a variety of organic analytes.
