Topical Collection "Recent Advances in Multifunctional Sensing Technology for Gas Analysis"
Interests: gas sensors; electronic noses; chemical analytical methods by SPME/GC-MS; multifunctional sensor systems for gas analysis; chemical sensing devices with low power sensor interface
This Topical Collection is addressed to the main advances and new directions in gas-sensing devices aiming to collect the most relevant works concerning such challenging topic. Gas Sensors and Multifunctional Gas Sensing Systems that are expected to improve the quality of human life by applying them to achieve specific purposes in various areas of daily life.
Stimulated by the multiple applications of gas sensors, research in this field is constantly evolving, based on advances in the synthesis and deposition of new gas-sensitive nanomaterials. Moreover, innovative technological solutions offered by micro and nanotechnology provide novel functional microfabricated platforms for sensors arrays and the integration of sensing elements. Such advances open up opportunities for the development of a wide range of gas-sensing devices based on different sensing principles and with improved properties (high detectivity, specificity, low power consumption, multifunctionality, and miniaturized size).
Major interests driving the gas sensors market across the world are environment monitoring, air quality analysis, food industry, industrial processing, automotive and aerospace industries, healthcare, breath analysis and volatilomics as early diagnostics in medicine and human biomonitoring. A large growth of the gas sensors market in the coming years will result from IoT applications, such as smart cities, smart homes, smartphones, and wearable devices.
This Topical Collection of the journal Chemosensors aims to cover various aspects of gas sensors and their applications, such as (but not limited to) the preparation/deposition/characterization of gas-sensing materials, the development of MEMS/NEMS platforms for the integration of gas sensing and nanomaterials, gas-sensing principles, electronic noses, analytical chemistry methods, electronic interfaces for chemical sensors, the development of devices for actual applications.

Abstract: Chemiresistive gas and ion sensors have been widely utilized to detect analytes of great significance to the environment, food and health. Paper based sensor which can be constructed on a low-cost paper substrate a simple and cost-efficient fabrication process attracts many interests to develop. Moreover, many materials that can be employed for designing chemiresistive sensors, such as carbon based nanomaterials, conductive polymers, metal oxides and inorganic chemical compounds. Most of them can provide large surface area and pitted structure, along with extraordinary electrical and thermal conductivities which are capable to improve sensor performance regarding sensitivity, selectivity and stability. In this review, we survey recent advances on different types of paper based chemiresistive gas and ion sensors, focusing on how the physical and chemical properties of these materials influence on the sensor response. Challenges and future perspectives for paper based chemiresistive sensors are also discussed.
