Abstract

An innovation to thin-film molecular imprinting is presented for the sensitive detection and effective discrimination of chiral compounds using a portable quartz crystal microbalance transduction technique. The facile approach involves i) colloidal sphere layering of latex particles onto the surface via a Langmuir-Blodgett-like technique followed by ii) template molecular imprinting using electrodeposition of a single functional and cross-linking monomer.
