The present technology consists of compositions comprising electrospun nanofibers and colorimetric reactants, directed to detection of molecule of interest including but not limited to explosives. The colorimetric reactants provide a colorimetric change in response to exposure to a molecule of interest, including but not limited to explosive compounds.
- An immediate, inexpensive, safe, and an easy to use method for explosives trace detection from contaminated surfaces.
Applications and Opportunities
- Detection of explosives
- Detection of other molecules
