In a recent publication, the team of Prof. Eduard Llobet at Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) tested Gnanomat advanced materials for NO2 gas sensors, showing good performance of both sensitivity and specificity. This finding opens up the possibility of developing graphene hybrid materials for chemoresistive sensors. Due to the lack of electrolyte management and a very modest energy input, these sensors provide a major advantage over standard sensors, which can be miniaturized. In fact, sensor designs incorporating Gnanomat materials operate at room temperature, which preserves the sensor’s stability and optimizes its energy consumption.
Gnanomat’s collaboration with URV will continue to optimize and supply advanced materials for the development of chemiresistors that can detect multiple gases of industrial relevance (NOx, NH3, H2 and VOC´s (volatile organic compounds)). Through this collaboration, new technologies will be developed in the area of IT using devices that provide a greater amount of information about pollutant gases in urban areas.Read more here: https://www.mdpi.com/1424-8220/23/13/6055
