Chemical Sensors Based on Molecularly Imprinted Sol-Gel Materials†
AbstractThe sol-gel technique is earning the worldwide attention of researchers in the field of material science, due to its versatility in synthesizing inorganic ceramic materials at mild conditions. High purity, homogeneity, controlled porosity, stable temperature and nanoscale structuring are the most remarkable features offered by this method for generating highly sensitive and selective matrices to incorporate analyte molecules. The crafting of sol-gel sensors through molecular imprinting has put great influence on the development of innovative chemical sensors, which can be seen from the growing number of publications in this field. The review provides a brief overview of sol-gel sensor applications, and discusses the contribution of molecular imprinting in exploring the new world of sensors. View Full-Text
