Review: Developments in the Field of Conducting and Non-conducting Polymer Based Potentiometric Membrane Sensors for Ions Over the Past Decade
Sensors 2008, 8, 2331-2412 (PDF format, 549 K)


This special issue is intended to focus on the recent advances that are being made in all areas of conducting polymer based electrochemical sensors. It is devised to survey the application of various kinds of conducting polymer, such as π-conjugated conducting polymer, inorganic conducting polymer, and conducting polymer composites as electrode modifier, as structural elements, as transducer, and as sensor component in electrochemical sensors. Special emphasis will be placed on the nano-structured conducting polymer based electrochemical biosensors, immunosensors, DNA sensors, and modified electrodes for electroanalysis. It features all aspects of amperometric, potentiometric, conductometric, coulometric, impedimetric, and voltammetric sensors and biosensors. New modification/combination of electrochemical detection principle, integrated and hyphenated with sampling, fluidic handling, separation with conducting polymer based sensors are also included.
Full research papers with new results (experimental or theoretical) in this field or a comprehensive review of the state- of-art of  cantilever sensors are encouraged for submission. There are no length restrictions for the manuscripts.


This issue will include the following topics:
