New Alcohol Sensor Made From Graphene-Based Thin-Films

New Alcohol Sensor Made From Graphene-Based Thin-Films - Featured Graphene Graphene Prospects

Chemical , of varying composition, are used across a wide range of industries to detect changes within a physical environment. Of the various compositions, sensors have surged of late, and in many areas- biosensors, pressure sensors, gas and humidity sensors, to name a few.

Now, an international effort, composed of Researchers from Saudi Arabia, China and the US, have developed a graphene-bacterial cellulose nanofiber (GC/BCN) hybrid sensor to detect alcohol (ethanol) with great efficiency.

The demand for sensors has exponentially increased in recent years are now employed in the automobile, , safety, indoor air quality, environmental control, food, industrial production and medical sectors. Despite sensor being established, there is still a demand for new and improved sensors across the varying industries.

Graphene sensors are always being developed, with new devices coming out that sense a different type of molecule. Even though the applications of graphene sensors are widespread, they all come back to one central application- flexible , which is often (but not always) the device type that graphene sensors adopt, independent of the application.
