Chemical sensing poses a challenge because it requires both sensitivity and selectivity for success. For many measurement schemes, sensitivity occurs at the expense of selectivity. To overcome this limitation, a sensitive detection technique is usually coupled to a highly selective screening system. We use monomolecular films to induce selectivity because they afford high permeability and excellent control over chemical identity. Following an overview of interfacial binding chemistry we use, we will focus on two different applications of monomolecular films to underscore the versatility of this structural motif.
