Abstract: The feasibility of explosive detection by means of work function readout of Molecularly Imprinted Polymer (MIPs) layers is investigated for the first time. Work function changes of TNT-imprinted MIP layers (TNT-MIP) have been studied using the Kelvin Probe technique. The response to TNT and different interfering substances has been recorded. The TNT concentrations have been verified by means of on-line IMR-MS analysis and subsequent GC-MS analysis. For TNT-MIP, a significant response to TNT concentrations < 50 ppb and an increased selectivity to TNT compared to non imprinted polymer were obtained
