Abstract: Fluorescent materials are used in many applications, including optical sensors, bioimaging, and drug delivery devices. Typical limitation such as photobleaching, low stability, and low quantum yield of conventional fluorophore are overcome by developing new hybrid nanomaterials. Luminescent hybrid silica-based materials in the form of nanoparticles, 2D film and composite mixture were synthesized and fully characterized. Structure-property relationship of all materials is explored using photophysical properties and other characterization techniques followed by application in the form of sensors for amines, tuning hydrophobicity of the surface and also as a potential adsorbent to adsorb pollutants. Such materials are expected to be useful towards developing new devices.
