Overview

The selective binding of a particular compound to another is a lockand-key principle omnipresent in living organisms and an indispensable
means of information transport and triggering responses. Derived from the biological archetype, synthetic receptors imitate nature's idea
for tailor-made functionalities such as detection (sensing), signaling, and triggering. This book provides systematically organized information
on all three important aspects of artifi cial receptor design as well as the knowledge on an exceptionally hot and multidisciplinary field of
research. Strong emphasis is placed on the methodology for discovering artificial receptors, with both defi nitions for chemosensitivity as
well as experimental setups supplied. Numerous classes of artificial receptors are covered, as well as their synthesis, immobilization on
surfaces, and quantitative data on their properties. The fi nal chapter with all relevant quantitative data on artifi cial receptors complete this
well-rounded book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Artificial Receptors for Chemical Sensors provides a well-rounded summary of applications of macromolecular receptors in the field of chemical sensors without neglecting the fundamentals of sensor design and function. The chapters are well-written and nicely balance the basic chemistry and practical applications of artificial receptors. The book will be a valuable resource for scientists working on all aspects of sensor development from the initial design to bringing sensors to the market." (Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, 2011)

Meet the Author

Vladimir M. Mirsky is Professor at Lausitz University of Applied Sciences, Senftenberg, Germany. He graduated from Moscow Medical University in Biophysics and went on to study Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry at the Frumkin Institute of Electrochemistry of the Soviet Academy of Sciences, obtaining there his PhD in 1986. He subsequently held an Alexander-von-Humboldt Research Fellowship and a research position at the CNRS Centre of Molecular Biology in France prior to joining the Institute of Analytical Chemistry, Chemical Sensors and Biosensors at Regensburg University in 1995. After habilitation he became Professor of Nanobiotechnology and moved to Lausitz. He is editor of two recent books, "Ultrathin Electrochemical Chemo- and Biosensors" and "Combinatorial Methods for Chemical and Biological Sensors". His work has led to about 20 patents and patent applications as well as 120 peer-reviewed scientifi c papers.

Anatoly K. Yatsimirsky is Professor of Chemistry at the National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City. He obtained his PhD and Dr. Sc. degrees from Moscow Lomonosov State University, where he was Professor prior to his move to Mexico in 1992. He spent Visiting Scholar/Professor stays at Milan University, Italy, in 1980/81 and at the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1998/99. His research is focused on physical organic chemistry and metal complex catalysis and he is the author of 160 peer-reviewed scientifi c publications including a monograph "Principles and Methods in Supramolecular Chemistry" by John Wiley & Sons and further book contributions.
