Molecular imprinted polymer (MIP) coated Quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) sensors were fabricated for the detection of "bisphenol A" in the liquid phase. The MIP-QCM sensor was designed for the selective detection of BPA, and MIP was designed for the proper adhesion between MIP and QCM Au electrode. MIP, contained specific cavities by self organized structure of functional monomers around a template, was synthesized on QCM Au electrode with covered self assembled monolayer (SAM). SAM had ion-pair interactions with functional monomers to form proper adhesions between MIP and QCM electrode. The MIP-QCM sensor performances such as sensitivity and selectivity are largely influenced by MIP characteristics. These influences were investigated, and were proved to be applicable for the fabrication of various MIP-QCM sensors.
