Analysis of metal ions is critical for chemical monitoring, environmental and clinical applications . For lab-on-achip technologies each circumstance can necessitate the use of different analysis techniques. We therefore developed a more universal platform based a novel spiropyran-conducting polymer (pBSP7) complex that takes advantage of both base chemistries to act as a dual control stimuli responsive material. We utilize this material for the first time to integrate a common chip architecture with multiple analytical techniques to examine the photochemical and electrochemical and sensing of species in solution.
