A series of polyurethanes were prepared from the maltose-ethylene glycol-diphenylmethane diisocyanate and used to construct a novel polyurethane electrode for the detection of dopamine. The polyurethanes were characterized by FT-IR, differential scanning calorimetry, and thermogravimetric analysis. The intrinsic viscosity and adhesive properties were also evaluated. Selectivity behaviour of films prepared from polyurethane solutions containing 1%, 3%, 5%, and 10% maltose to electroactive and nonelectroactive substances was examined by DPV. The results demonstrated that polymer electrode by 2 mu L polyurethane solutions containing 3% maltose was allowed penetration of dopamine while blocking the permeation of ascorbic acid and uric acid through film.
