About this book

This book reviews the state of art in the field of chemical sensors for analyses of ionic or molecular species dissolved in liquid media, mainly in aqueous solutions. The transduction of such devices is based on chemical, biological and physical phenomena.

The fundamental phenomena involved in these sensors are described in the different chapters by specialists having a good expertise in the field. Numerous recent bibliographic references are given.

In short, an important, meticulously researched, and engagingly presented contribution unrivalled in comprehensiveness and quality. ("Current Engineering Practice", 2010)
