Opto-chemical transducers, which exhibit changes in luminescence and/or absorption characteristics as a function of local conditions, are currently of great interest for use in performing quantitative chemical analyses. Present research is focused on the preparation and characterization of novel optrode materials which may be remotely interrogated via optical fiber carriers. The approach under investigation involves preparation of sol-gel derived films which are sensitized by the entrapment of analyte-complexing organic probe molecules. Zn(II)aq induced perturbations to the luminescence behavior of a porphyrin derivative entrapped within a porous sol-gel derived host matrix are detailed.
