One of the first volumes in the comprehensive new Springer series Integrated Microanalytical Sytems, edited by R. Potyrailo
Complements the experimental approach in series volume, "Combinatorial methods for sensor materials," by Potyrailo and Mirsky
First book exclusively devoted to the selection of sensors and components for a chemical sensing array
Applications of "electronic noses" include process control, medical diagnosis, and environmental monitoring
In Computational Methods for Sensor Material Selection, experts discuss the design and selection of active sensing surfaces for chemical sensors, particularly sensors used in vapor sensing arrays or electronic noses.
Part I covers first principles.
Part II focuses on identifying and evaluating candidate sensing materials and covers such topics as calculations of sensor-analyte interactions, statistical and semi-empirical methods based on characteristics of sensing material and analyte, and new experimental methods.
Part III advises on selecting materials for inclusion in arrays by use of statistical methods and algorithm-based methods for evaluating the array response to target analytes.
This book will appeal to researchers in academia and industry involved in chemical vapor sensing and monitoring. Also, it will be of special interest to those who are developing devices based on chemical sensing arrays.
