In this work, the possibility of manufacturing chemiresistive volatile organic compounds sensing devices by inkjet printing an aqueous suspension of graphene-like layers on paper substrates has been studied. The electrical responses of the devices have been analyzed upon exposure to ethanol at room temperature in dry ambient and analyzed in terms of the conductance variation. Additionally, a reproducibility analysis on the device performances has been investigated.
