Chemical Sensors

An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers


Table of contents

About this book


Research in the area of chemical and biochemical sensors and the development of respective applications is still growing rapidly. In the last decade it has become evident that the successful development of chemical and biochemical sensors resistant to the harsh conditions in the various routine applications calls for a cooperation between chemists and engineers.Thus, this book aims at instructing researcher and practitioners in both disciplines in a strictly systematic, interdisciplinary and practice-oriented way about the basic technology of chemical and biochemical sensors. This concise volume bridges the gap between the different "ways of thinking" in chemistry, physics and engineering. It provides a firm grounding for engineers, industrial and academic researcher in the field, for practitioners and novices as well as for advanced students.

From the reviews:

"Chemical Sensors: An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers is a 273-page monograph that offers what its subtitle claims. … an introduction to chemical sensors for undergraduate students studying chemistry, physics, or engineering. … The book is well organized … . Gründler’s approach could be a good marketing tool, and it could also lure unsuspecting novices to the field of chemical sensors." (Jiri Janata, Physics Today, March, 2008)
