We employed a fluorogenic Ag+ sensor, tetrazole-functionalized tetraphenylethylene derivative 1 (TEZ-TPE-1), to investigate the dissolution kinetics of AgNPs and AgNWs in aquatic environments. Real-time and quantitative monitoring of Ag+ release was achieved by using the proposed method, which agreed well with the conventional ICP-MS detection method. Read More
