Metal oxide nanomaterials have not received comprehensive treatment in any other source
This book brings together information scattered throughout the literature
Metal oxide nanomaterials will permit development of new, smart materials tailored for specific applications
These nanomaterials uniquely offer the potential of very powerful reaction characteristics for the next generation of chemical sensors
This book presents a state-of-the-art account and critical analysis of of the science and technology of metal oxide nanomaterials based chemical sensors. It documents the impact of nanotechnology on sensor science by leading research laboratories and the implementation of metal oxide nanomaterial research methodologies for the discovery and optimization of new sensor materials and sensing systems. The book provides a detailed description of (i) The current understanding of metal oxide sensing principles, (ii) Advances in metal oxide nanomaterial synthesis and multi-material architectures as well as the interplay of structure/composition and function (iii) Analysis of techniques utilized for the development of advanced metal oxide nanomaterial sensors, thus enabling a broad impact into sensor applications, (iv) Advances, challenges and insights gained from the in situ/ex situ analysis of reaction mechanisms and miniaturization, and (v) Technical development and materials integration challenges in the fabrication of sensing arrays and devices.
