Epub 2015 Oct 15.A novel fluorescence probe based on modified halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) by using 1-pyrenylboronic acid selectively grafted onto the inner surface of lumen was successfully achieved. The solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance ((13)C and (11)B), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) confirmed that the boronic acid group only binds to alumina at the tube lumen and does not bind the tube's outer siloxane surface.
