Paper Abstract

There are a lot of optical sensors for the selective determination of ion species. Some organic compounds also have been determined by optical sensors using the enzymatic and immunological reactions. On the other hand, calixarenes are well known as novel host molecules, and specific guest ions or molecules can be incorporated inside the cavity of calixarenes. This specific recognition function of calixarene has been applied to the development of electrochemical and optical ion sensors. However, an optical sensing of organic molecules using this host-guest system is a new approach at present. In this study, a sensing membrane containing a fluorescent probe and a calixarene derivative is prepared, and it is attached on a distal end of an optical fiber. An organic compound, which specially interacts with the calixarene derivative, is optically determined. The response mechanism of the sensor is discussed.
