Fundamentals of Sensing Materials. Volume 3, Polymers and Other MaterialseBook - 2010
This volume covers a variety of topics in the rapidly developing field of chemical sensors. The purpose of this volume is to explain and illustrate the use of multifunctional materials such as polymers, calixarenes, ion conductors, biological systems, and novel semiconductors in chemical sensors. These materials differ fundamentally from standard metal oxides and metals, so their application provides opportunities to design sensors based on entirely different mechanisms of sensing. As a result, new trends in the elaboration of sensors with different functional attributes and for building instruments with previously unavailable capabilities demanded by new applications have opened up. Therefore, this book is intended to be a primary source for both fundamental and practical information related to these multifunctional materials, which will be necessary for future development.
