Nanomaterials Design for Sensing Applications examines chemosensors, beginning with molecules that are able to respond to certain stimuli and then showing their assembly and incorporation into sensing materials. The mechanisms of their action for the detection of ions, specific molecules and biostructures, are also covered. A major theme is the affordability of sensors, with particular attention paid to inexpensive and reliable colorimetric sensors that can be read by the naked eye. The book also delves into the development of sensors that utilize existing RFID infrastructure and introduces a novel strategy for the development of self-healing sensing platforms. This book will help readers develop a better understanding of the types of materials used for sensing at the nano level, while also providing an insightful overview on recent advances in this important area.

Key Features

About the Editor

Olena Zenkina

Olena V. Zenkina studied chemical engineering at NTU"KPI", Kharkiv, Ukraine. After graduation, she joined the group of Prof. Milko van der Boom in the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel. There she was working on her Ph.D. in chemistry exploring d-10 metals ring-walking over pi-conjugated systems. Her postdoctoral experience in the group of Prof. Cathleen M. Crudden at Queen's University, Kingston, Canada included the discovery of single crystal to single crystal transformations, development of novel oxygen sensors, and carbene self-assembled monolayers formation on gold surfaces. After accepting a position of Assistant Professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in Oshawa, Canada, Dr. Zenkina is focused on synthetic methodologies for the creation of well-defined self-assembled architectures on various surface supports (transparent metal oxide surfaces, metal surfaces, paper, glass, etc.) and their application in microfabrication of molecular-based “smart” functional devices.
