Abstract: A chemical sensor for the detection of cocaine has been developed, based on a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) containing a fluorescein moiety as the signalling group. The fluorescent MIP was formed and covalently attached to the distal end of an optical fibre. The sensor exhibited an increase in fluorescence intensity in response to cocaine in an aqueous acetonitrile mixture. Selectivity for cocaine over codeine has been demonstrated
Template and target information: cocaine
