Mesoporous metal films can detect biomarkers with high sensitivity. Further coating the mesoporous metal with polymers enhances sensing selectivity by favoring specific biomarkers against other interferents. In the present study, we report the fabrication of a Nafion®-coated mesoporous Pd film to filtrate interferents present in sweat during non-invasive biosensing. By using a Nafion®-coated mesoporous Pd film, lactic acid, a metabolite present in sweat, can be successfully detected with high sensitivity.
