Abstract

This report reviews the utility of Langmiur-Blodgett (LB) membranes in preparing sensitive layers of chemical sensors. It is shown that LB membranes have advantages which contribute significantly in the preparation of suitable sensitive layers of chemical sensors. The most significant feature of LB membranes in chemical sensor applications relates to a model structure of the bilayer lipid membrane of biological cells. In spite of these attractive features, there are problems which prevent the wider application of LB membranes in chemical sensors. Strong interdisciplinary efforts must be generated in order to solve these problems and successfully apply LB membranes to chemical sensor fabrications.
