Drinking water from a tap is a source of potential exposure to environmental contaminants. This requires that public water supplies should be regularly monitored for heavy metals. Many of heavy metal ions are retained and accumulated in water strongly. Consequently it has entered the food chain to threaten human health. A quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) based on a phosphate-modified dendrimer film was investigated for direct detection of Cu(II) metal ion in water. This QCM sensor exhibited the high sensitivity and the short response time to Cu(II) metal ion.
