Selective Optode Membranes for Heavy Metal Ion Detection

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


Optode membranes for Lead(II) based on an ion-exchange mechanism and neutral ionophores show that the calix[4]arene ionophores developed for CHEMFETS can be used in optical sensing schemes. To achieve pH independent sensor response, chromoionophores have been developed based on these neutral ionophores, which show a optical response to the complexation of metal ions.
