Chapter 2

Advanced Nanosensors for Environmental Monitoring

Omowunmi A. Sadik,    Department of Chemistry, Center for Advanced Sensors and Environmental Systems, State University of New York at Binghamton, Binghamton, NY, USA

Nanoparticle-enhanced chemical and biosensors offer dynamic and quantitative analysis of toxic compounds in drinking water with potentials to provide rapid, ultrasensitive, and accurate risk assessment. We have developed a number of nanostructured materials as candidates for assessing the occurrence of water contamination. These include polyamic acid–metal nanoparticle composite membranes, polyoxy-dianiline membranes, sequestered metal nanoparticles within electroconducting polymers, and underpotential deposition of metal ...
