Nanomaterials have been very important for various applications for many decades. The ability to selectively arrange nanosized domains of inorganic, organic and hybrid materials offers now an attractive route to engineer new nanostructured materials with unique combination of properties and multiple tunable functionalities that can be used in the chemical sensing field. Functional materials are to be considerate the heart of the sensor because they impact the sensitivity for quantification, recognition selectivity and specificity, as well as overall quality and robustness of the detection performance.
Due to their easy use, low cost and simplicity of operation, solid state chemical sensors based on electrical and electrochemical transduction principles are receiving increasing attention in both scientific and industria for their widespread range of applications spanning from comfort, safety, security, medicine to environmental monitoring and process engineering. Novel functional nanomaterials provide further advantages to address the demand for more sensitive, selective, stable, smaller size and and long-life electrical and electrochemical sensing devices.
This symposium aims at enlightening recent progress and perspective views of nanomaterials with very peculiar functional properties, including, carbon nanostructures, metal oxides, 2D-TMDS, graphene, inorganic and organic hybrids, and relative technology achievements applied in the field of solid state chemical sensors developments. Through the exploitation of the high reactivity of nanomaterials, due to their extremely high surface-to-volume ratio, very special surface states, quantum confinement effects and outstanding electronic properties, they address the demand for more sensitive, selective, stable, smaller size and low power consumption chemical sensor suitable for microelectronics integration and wide practical use.
Matter covered includes:
  • Basic principles of chemical sensors;
  • New functional nanomaterials for semiconductor and electrochemical sensors;
  • Novel functionalization approaches by molecular engineering;
  • Nanostructure design and control of the major factors affecting sensing performance;
  • Sensor devices design and evaluation;
  • Nanosensor architectures by top-down, bottom-up or combined approaches;
