Abstract

Carbon nanocage-embedded nanofibrous film works as a highly selective adsorbent of carcinogen aromatic amines. By using quartz crystal microbalance techniques, even ppm levels of aniline can be repetitively detected, while other chemical compounds such as water, ammonia, and benzene give negligible responses. This technique should be applicable for high-throughput cancer risk management.
