The underlying mechanisms of diverse types of nanomaterials (NMs)-based sensing systems for gas phase formaldehyde have been discussed with relevant case studies. These sensing methodologies have been critically evaluated in terms of performance comparison (e.g., sensitivities) along with challenges, and future prospects for the NMs-based sensors for detection of gaseous formaldehyde.

Typical naphthalic anhydride molecules are synthesized, which serve as surface ligands for the production of ligand-capped small-sized SiNPs. Quantum yield (QY) of the resultant SiNPs are relatively low, but could be greatly enhanced from ~10% to ~50% through the SPIPE strategy. Taken together with the theoretical calculation and the results of time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC), we reveal that activated excited-state charge transfer (CT) interactions between surface-covered ligand and silicon oxide coating would be responsible for the observed QY enhancement.
