Precipitation polymerizations catalyzed by nHz quantified by extinction measurements. a Time-dependent UV–vis measurements of a NIPAAm polymerization catalyzed by 25 ng mL−1 nHz. The spectra were recorded every 30 s. b Time-dependent extinction measurements at 600 nm of NIPAAm polymerization catalyzed by 10 ng mL−1 (black), 25 ng mL−1 (red), 50 ng mL−1 (blue), 100 ng mL−1 (pink), 150 ng mL−1 (cyan), 400 ng ml−1 (navy blue), and 1000 ng ml−1 nHz (violet). A blank reaction without nHz is also observed (purple). c Dose-response curve for nHz at 600 nm. (Average of n = 5 and SD; the red line represents the linear fit to the data between 25 ng mL−1 and 1000 ng mL−1) d Dose-response curve for low concentrations of nHz at 380 nm (Average of n = 6 and SD; the black line represents the linear fit to the data, the red dotted lines indicate the 95% confidence interval, the orange vertical line indicates the decision limit and the blue vertical line indicates the detection limit)
