The aim of this project is the development of biomimetic sensors for the determination of species of biological and environmetal interest, such as phenols.The construction of these sensors will be based on the MIP employment, presenting high selectivity associated with electroactive species such as phthalocianines, porphyrins acting as catalysts. This association will be useful to increase the applicability of MIP in the sensors preparation allowing a high selectivity and sensitivity. These sensors will be prepared developing the MIP and fixing in on the electrode surface. The polymeric material will be characterized using electrochemical techniques focusing in the selectivity and sensitivity. The best MIP will be optimized and tested in samples, evaluating the sensor performance.
