Abstract

Polymer nanocomposites (PNCs) are attractive as sensing materials in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) chemical sensors because they combine the simple processability of polymers together with the conductivity properties of nanoparticles dispersed in the insulating polymer matrix. Recently, these materials are easily processed by inkjet printing (IJP) technique whose patterning capability is one of its main advantages. In the present work, we fabricated PNCs chemical sensors inkjet printing a polystyrene (PS)/carbon black (CB) composite based ink. The sensor responses have been measured upon exposure to acetone organic vapors and analyzed as function of sensitive material geometry. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
