Reversible biosensors based on 2-(3,5 -dinitrophenyl)-4-[4-(1,4,7, 10-tetraoxa-13-azacyclopentadecyl) benzylidene]-5-oxazolone (CPO-I), 2-(4-nitrophenyl)-4-[4-(1,4,7,10-tetraoxa-13-azacyclopentadecyl)benzylidenej-5-oxazolone (CPO-II) and 2-(4-tolyl)-4-[4-(1,4,7,10-tetraoxa-13-azacyclopentadecyl)benzy lidene]-5-oxazol one (CPO-III) derivatives immobilized in a polyvinylchloride matrix, doped with acetylcholinesterase, have been developed. The biosensors were calibrated for acetylcholine as neurotransmitter and the potent, selective and reversible cholinesterase inhibitor, donepezil ((+/-)-2-[(1-benzyl-piperidine-4-yl)ethyl]-5,6-dimetoxyindan-1-one hydrochloride). The photophysical parameters of all derivatives were also examined in PVC in which medium, they exhibited excellent photostability. (c) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
