A consideration of the development of photochemical systems with functions as optical sensors or switches, discussing materials and chemical systems, technology, and applications for target molecules and optical signal multiplexing. It contains novel applications in electrogenerated chemiluminescence and supramolecular photophysics for sensing chemical and biological analytes.
