This article describes conducting polymer research and also outlines the requirements for the successful applications of conducting polymers for analytical purposes. It discusses a comprehensive review of biosensing and chemical-sensing applications of conducting electroactive polymers (CEPs) and analyses recent advances in CEP sensing technologies. The advantages as well as limitations of utilizing CEPs as sensors and ways of overcoming these limitations are presented. CEP-based immunoassay systems most promising for future introduction into the practice of environmental analysis are also analyzed.
