Nanometric films of a thiomacrocyclic ionophore, 4-phenyl-4-sulfide-11(1- oxodecyl)-1,7-dithia-11-aza-4-phosphacyclotetradecane (ThM), have been deposited on the surface of a Glassy Carbon Electrode (GCE) by the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique. The films have been characterised by using AFM. The influence of these modified electrodes (GCE-ThM) on the reduction of Cu(II) ions has been investigated by using Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), and its sensor response has been checked. The CV and EIS responses of LB films on GCE indicate that these ThM films are sensitive to Cu(II) ions. The analysis by EIS of the interference of some other cations, as Mg(II) and Co(II), shows that LB films of ThM can be used for specific Cu(II) sensing applications.
