Microcystin has been causing serious environmental pollution; however, the recognition of such compounds is still challenging because of low abundance and coexisting interfering species. In this contribution, we develop a novel microfluidic paper-based colorimetric sensor by exploiting molecular imprinting technology and Fenton reaction for on-site microcystin-RR determination in complex water samples using a smartphone. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2022.
