About this book


This book covers new materials used as analytical devices for increasing the interactions between the development of new analytical devices and materials science. The authors describe how different types of materials such as polymers, self-assembled layers, phthalocyanines, and nanomaterials can further enhance sensitivity and promote selectivity between analytes for different applications. They explain how continuing research and discussion into materials science for chemical sensing is stimulating the search for different strategies and technologies that extract information for these chemical sensors in order to obtain a chemical fingerprint of samples.

“Materials for chemical sensing presents a good overview of the practical potentialities of chemical sensors and addresses a wide number of applications, ranging from environmental to life sciences. Many chapters have been contributed by leading experts in their particular fields. The wide coverage makes this book a useful reference book for scientists and graduate students approaching the chemical sensing research field.” (Marco Giannetto, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 409 (20), August, 2017) 

“Materials for Chemical Sensing, by Paixão (chemistry, Univ. of São Paulo, Brazil) and Reddy (applied analytical chemistry, Univ. of Surrey, UK), provides a current overview of chemical sensing techniques with special emphasis on nano-structured devices. … Each chapter is well written and most contain drawings and pictures that are of high quality. … Each chapter includes an extensive list of references. … Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above; faculty and professionals.” (H. Giesche, Choice, Vol. 54 (10), June, 2017)
