Resistive Type Terpene Sensors Using Conductive Polymers and Molecularly Imprinted Polymers
Resistive type interdigited electrode (IDE) sensors covered with a mixture of molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP)/conductive polymer (CP) were designed and fabricated to detect terpene gases. The sensor's sensitivity and selectivity were studied for monoterpenes such as -pinene, limonene, linalool and geraniol. Conductivity changes were used to determine the optimum MIP and CP ratio for the resistive type terpene sensor. A conduction mechanism which explains the correlation between the electrical conductivity and cavity shape was proposed based on the presence of polymer matrix.
