Research Progress in the Sensor Application of Ferrocene and Its Derivatives


Abstract:
Ferrocene(Fc), a metallorganic sandwich-structured compound, can improve the electron transfer efficiency of sensor electrode effectively, due to its excellent redox property. In this review, we summarized the recent development of ferrocene and its derivatives in enzyme biosensors, immunosensors and chemical ion sensors, and then prospected a further development outlook.
