New phosphorescent oxygen-sensitive materials based on nanostructured high density polyethylene and polypropylene films are described. The polymer substrates undergo treatment by a solvent crazing process to create a well-developed network of controlled, nanometer-size pores. Indicator dye molecules are then embedded by physical entrapment in such nanostructures which subsequently can be healed. Such sensors demonstrate improved working characteristics and allow simple, cost-efficient production and disposable use. They are well suited for large-scale applications such as nondestructive control of residual oxygen and "smart" packaging.
