Good technological effectiveness and processibility is an important criterion in selecting a material for gas sensor. Present short chapter considers this issue in relation to the various gas sensing materials such as polymers, solid electrolytes and 1D nanostructures. Chapter includes 2 figures, 1 Table and 39 references.
