Best of both worlds: New organic–inorganic gas sensors for better air quality monitoring

Source: Science Daily

With air pollution increasing year-on-year, the need for efficient, portable, and low-cost gas sensors that can detect toxic gases in real time grows stronger. Organic polymer-based sensors have the potential to fulfill all these requirements, but they’re not durable at room temperature. Now, researchers have solved this durability problem through a hybrid organic-inorganic design, while maintaining high detection sensitivity.
