    Abstract

    The exposure of spun films of an amphiphilic calix-4-resorcinarene (C-4-RA) derivative to vapours of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and m-xylene (BTEX) has produced a graded response, promising for the development of multisensor arrays. Fast and reversible adsorption of ethylbenzene was associated with changing the refractive index of the sensing layer and is believed to be due to the host-guest interaction between the cavitand C-4-RA molecules and the vapour molecules. Prolonged irradiation of the films with a focused laser beam has resulted in an initial increase of film sensitivity to the different organic vapours. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
