Chemical sensors are integral to the automation of myriad industrial processes, as well as everyday monitoring of such activities as public safety, engine performance, medical therapeutics, and many more. This massive reference work will cover all major categories of chemical sensor materials and devices, and their general functional usage...from monitoring and analyzing gases, to analyzing liquids and compounds of all kinds. This is THE reference work on sensors used for chemical detection and analysis. In this second volume will be found new developments in the use of nano-sized materials for chemical sensing applications. The latest findings on one-dimensional metal oxide structures, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and metal nanoparticles for use in new chemical sensing technologies are covered, along with the materials processing and physical and chemical properties of nano-scaled sensing materials.
