A novel quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) sensor based on combining phosphate-modified dendrimer and ionophore has been developed for the determination of Cu(II) ions. The performance of the developed QCM sensor was evaluated based on frequency data and experimental results evidently indicated that the prepared sensor could be sensitive for the determination of Cu(II) ions in water. The obtained QCM sensor presents good selectivity monitoring of Cu(II) ions, short response time (40 s), and wide linear range (0.01-100 μM).
