Ion-Selective Polymeric Membranes for Chemical Sensors

  title={Ion-Selective Polymeric Membranes for Chemical Sensors},
  author={Eugenia Eftimie Totu and Catalina-Paula Spatarelu and Alexandra Maier},
The aim of this work was to develop cation-sensors of clinical interest, i.e. potassium, calcium, magnesium sensors. Initially, new PVC based selective membranes were obtained. The potassium sensor using benzo18-crown 6 shows a slope of 57.51 mV.dec -1 , while the calcium sensor using ETH 129 presents a slope of 29.11 mV.dec -1 and the magnesium sensor using benzo-15-crown-5 has a slope of 27.77 mV.dec -1 .

Cytotoxicity Study of Ionophore-Based Membranes: Towards On-Body and In Vivo Ion Sensing.

The aims of this study are to create an awareness in the scientific community surrounding the need to create biocompatibility assays during the very first steps of any sensor development with an intended biomedical application, and avoiding further problems during massive validations towards the final in vivo use and commercialization of such devices.

Development of Potentiometric Phenol Sensors by Nata de Coco Membrane on Screen-Printed Carbon Electrode

Nata de coco, a bacterial cellulose as a result of coconut water fermentation, is a conductive polymer with a electrical conductivity of 553 μS/cm and has high mechanical stability, used as a supporting membrane for the development of phenol sensors in potentiometry.

Deposition Volume and Conditioning Time for Good Nernstian Response from a Novel PVC-based Mn(TPP)Cl Membrane for Histamine Sensitive FET

 Abstract — Histidine, a type of amino acid in fish muscle tissue, is capable of causing scombroid poisoning. This happens when the toxin produced by the fish due to mishandling of storage,
