A molecular structure (organic or inorganic complexes) utilised for sensing an analyte to cause a discernible change or a signal is known as a molecular sensor or chemosensor. In order for a chemosensor to work, a molecular interaction must take place.
This interaction often entails the constant monitoring of a chemical species’ activity in a specific matrix, such as solution, air, blood, tissue, waste effluents, drinking water, etc. Chemosensing, a type of molecular recognition, is the term for the use of chemosensors.
Crown ethers, which have a strong affinity for sodium ions but not potassium, are two examples of molecular sensors, as are methods of metal detection via so-called complexones, which are conventional pH indicators that have been modified to include metal-sensitive chemical groups.
The Global Molecular sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Molecular Sensor System Developed to Detect Late Blight.A new molecular sensor system that detects harmful diseases in plants and food crops including potatoes and tomatoes has been developed.Genetic engineering techniques are being used to create novel potato cultivars that produce unique proteins.
According to the release, these proteins function as a biological sensor that may be transported to the chloroplasts in plant cells, where photosynthesis occurs.
It is difficult to recognise the disease in its early stages because there are no outward indications on the leaf.According to the announcement, the sensitive cameras can pick up the signals provided by the sensor and acquire spatial information about the entire plant.
The photos aid in monitoring the plant’s physiological state while late blight develops.Even in the early, invisible phases, the protein was able to identify damaged leaf regions.
According to the announcement, the late blight-affected portions of the leaf exhibit higher levels of photosynthetic activity than the remainder of the leaf. This demonstrates how the pathogen enhances leaf productivity early on in the disease, hiding the disease’s onset in the plant.
