What is it about?
The present mini-review assesses sensors’ surface modification platforms aiming at enhancing detection features (sensitivity, selectivity, and limit of detection) of the proposed devices including nanostructures, biological networks, polymers, and macrocycles with a special emphasis on calixarenes/resorcinarenes oligomers. Examples of electrochemical, optical, and piezo-gravimetric-based sensors for monitoring metal ions are also stated and discussed.

Why is it important?
The topic is very recent and important and is not covered enough by researchers. our study shows the great interest of using the chemically modified sensor platforms due to smplicity and economics beside being sensitive and selective.
