Paper Title:
Characteristics and Mechanism for Host–Guest Recognition of Isopropanol Vapor Based on Calixarene Supramolecules
  Abstract

The adsorption characteristics of four calixarene supramolecular compounds, like RCT, PCT, MRCT, and TBCA, as coating materials of quartz crystal microbalance sensors responding to isopropanol vapor have been investigated in this paper. The results showed that the RCT was the best coating material for isopropanol vapor when the coating mass reached 20.41 μg. The frequency shift of RCT coated QCM and the concentration of isopropanol vapor had a good linear relationship and sensitivity. Comparing with the gas chromatography, the QCM sensor could be well used for the determination of isopropanol vapor with a recovery rate of 95.22~108.1 %, and the two methods showed a well consistent examination result. Also, the sensor possessed good reversibility, reproducibility and stability, indicating that the RCT coated QCM sensor can be applied for the detection of the atmospheric polutant of isopropanol vapor in practice. The mechanism of the calixarene derivative for recognition of the isopropanol molecule has been preliminarily discussed.
