Langmuir-Blodgett films and black lipid membranes in biospecific surface-selective sensors
Artificial membrane structures containing biospecific binding sites have become important in the development of surface-selective sensor devices. The use of Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films and black lipid membranes in these devices is discussed. This report also reviews enzyme-substrate, antibody-antigen, lectin-saccharide, receptor-transmitter and porphyrin systems suitable for deposition as, or incorporation into, membrane structures. The discussion is accompanied by pertinent examples from the literature. The experimental techniques and future prospects associated with the application of LB films and related technologies to biospecific sensor development are also discussed. © 1987.
