This paper presents an efficient and simple reagent immobilization procedure for ion-sensitive membranes of fiber-optic chemical sensors. The applied procedure combines two well-known types of sensing optrode layers: the surface membrane and the bulk type using a polymer track membrane (PTM). The microporous polymer foil significantly increases the active surface of the membrane for reagent immobilization and allows a larger amount of an indicator dye to be incorporated, which leads to large changes in the measured signal. Additionally, the high porosity of a PTM reduces the barrier of mass transport, which decreases the response time of prepared optomembranes. The preparation and performance of optrodes for redox titration and pH fiber-optic sensors based on cellulose acetate PTMs are described.
