Abstract

Silicon dioxide ion-sensitive field effect transistors were modified by silylation with methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane (MPTS) and with in situ photopolymerized poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate). Subsequently, the covalently linked methacrylate was swollen with a buffered potassium chloride solution, prior to the introduction of a hydrophobic sensing membrane. The introduced hydrogel layer effects a significant reduction in the peak-to-peak noise levels and eliminates completely interference from carbon dioxide. The method is compatible with integrated circuit photolithographic techniques and improves the development of potentiometric biosensors and chemical sensors.
