INnovative chemIcal sensors for enanTioselective detectIon of chiral pOllutants

Project description

Novel chemical sensor detects chiral compounds in real time

Chiral chemicals – comprising molecules that cannot be superimposed on their mirror image – are increasingly being used for manufacturing pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, food ingredients and perfumes. The disposal of chiral compounds can pose a threat to the environment owing to their high biological activity. The EU-funded INITIO project plans to develop a portable chemical sensor that can analyse and discriminate chiral molecules on site and in real time. Unlike current chemical sensors, the proposed technology features suitable solid-state receptors (based on porphyrin derivatives) that can reliably analyse the content of chiral waste.
