Principles of Chemical Sensors

Authors: Janata, Jiri

  • Focus is on physical and chemical principles of operation of chemical sensors, not on their detailed description
  • Four main categories of sensing principles are covered: Thermal, mass, electrochemical and optical
  • Sensor applications are included only as examples
  • General topics include: Origins of selectivity, data reduction, elements of fabrication
  • Appendices allow non-specialists to follow the explanations

About this Textbook

There are so many chemical sensor books on the market that adding one more would seem to be a rather unnecessary exercise. My aim has been to provide material that college or graduate level instructors could use when teaching this subject. The focus is on operating principles, rather than on description of specific sensor or even types of sensors. People who regularly referee sensor manuscripts and research proposals may also find it useful as a reference, for testing one or another dubious proposed sensing scheme. Unfortunately, some strange ideas often get through the review process and become a permanent part of the knowledge database. A "food-for-thought" section has been added at the end of each chapter, which is intended to provoke probing questions about such "schemes". Since this is a never-ending process a "food-for-thought" website has been established as a permanent "blog" that supplements this book. It can be accessed at: http://www.chemistry.gatech.edu/faculty/Janata/

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“Introduces the main operating principles of chemical sensors … . addressed to students of chemistry, physics, and engineering who want to gain knowledge of the working principles of chemical sensors. … excellent ‘teaching’ book for graduate and master students … . experienced researchers in this field can also find useful information on basic concepts of sensing principles. … provide the reader with basic knowledge of this field. … a good ‘teaching’ book on chemical sensors that could be used in introductory courses on this topic.” (María Cruz Moreno-Bondi, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 399, 2011)
