Quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) biosensor was used for the chiral recognition of five pairs of enantiomers by using goat serum albumin (GSA) and rabbit serum albumin (RbSA) as chiral selectors. Serum albumin (SA) was immobilized on the QCM through the self-assembled monolayer technique, and the surface concentration of GSA and RbSA were 8.8 × 10(-12)   mol cm(-2) and 1.2 × 10(-11)  mol cm(-2) , respectively. The QCM biosensors showed excellent sensitivity and selectivity. Meanwhile, the chiral recognition of SA sensors was quite species dependent. There were differences between GSA and RbSA sensors in the ability and the preference of chiral recognition. To R,S-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-1-naphthylamine (R,S-1-TNA), R,S-1-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethylamine (R,S-4-MPEA), and R,S-1-(3-methoxyphenyl)ethylamine (R,S-3-MPEA), the preference of the stereoselective SA-drug binding of the two kinds of SA sensors were consistent. However, to R,S-2-octanol (R, S-2-OT) and R,S-methyl lactate (R,S-MEL), the two kinds of SA sensors had opposite chiral recognition preference. Moreover, the interactions of SA and the five pairs of enantiomers have been further investigated through ultraviolet (UV) and fluorescent (FL) spectra. The UV/FL results were in accordance with the consequence of QCM. Chirality, 2012. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
