  • The main objective of this work was to investigate the binding capabilities of the newly synthesized bimodal triazole-calix[4]arene functionalized microcantilevers towards selected heavy metals in aqueous solution. Gold-coated microcantilever sensors were first modified with a selfassembled monolayer of calix[4]arene. Selected target metal ions (e.g. Hg2+, Fe2+, Ni2+, Zn2+, and Pb2+) were then introduced into a cell containing the functionalized microcantilevers. The interactions between the… CONTINUE READING
