Abstract

Novel 3-substituted pyrrole monomers possessing chiral side groups were synthesised. These compounds were successfully polymerised with ferric salts and the polymer materials fabricated into sensors. The sensors were found to elicit differential changes in electrical resistance and mass, when exposed to different chiral enantiomers in the vapour phase. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V.
