A chiral sensing electrode has been prepared by coating an indium tin oxide (ITO) substrate with a hybrid film of metal complexes and a clay layer (montmorillonite). By applying the combined method of the Langmuir-Blodgett and self-assembly techniques, a monolayer of a water-soluble chiral metal complex (Lambda-[Os(phen)(3)](2+)), which acted as a mediator of oxidizing a target molecule, was fixed electrostatically onto a single-layered clay film. Chiral sensing was demonstrated by monitoring a… CONTINUE READING
