Abstract

A biomembrane-mimetic sensor with an unusual stability was prepared from a multiphase material, i.e. poly(styrene-coacrylonitrile)-poly(L-glutamate) block copolymer 1, which was coated on a Pt wire; the sensor showed electrochemical response towards Ca2+ based on the ion-induced conformational transition of the polypeptide as sensitizer.
