Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pollution, including air contamination, is one of the major issues currently faced by the humankind. The main cause of air pollution is the release of domestic and industrial pollutants which are harmful to human health and the planet. Therefore, efficient sensors are needed to detect pollutants. The research and development in the field of gas sensors started a long time ago, and various materials have been explored for sensing toxic gases and pollutants. Today, the sensors are in the market, developed by academic institutions and industries. However, there is plenty of space to develop and fabricate efficient gas sensors that are likely to be utilized for indoor to outdoor air quality monitoring. These sensors could be used for various fields such as breath analysis, household and industrial safety, detection of toxicants, explosives and weapons, and many more. Moreover, for the early detection of diseases, it could be a time-saving diagnostic tool, and for the Internet of Things, it could smell as well as humans do.   

As an expert in the sensing field, you are invited to submit your contributions in the field of gas sensors covering basic principles, sensing phenomena, development of sensor materials, sensing strategies and fabrication of sensors. Contributions from industries would also be appreciated. This Special Issue is open for all materials used to sense various gases including O2, H2, COx, NOx, NH3, LPG, H2S, CH4, SOx, organic contaminations, etc.
