Notes

“Chemical vapor sensors are widely used in applications such as defense, homeland security, health care, and environmental monitoring applications. For example, chemical vapor sensors may be used for real-time sensing of chemical warfare stimulants in a battlefield by monitoring resistivity changes of soldiers' clothing. In recent years, there has been an increasing need for chemical vapor sensors which are efficient, mechanically robust, environmentally stable, and which operate with low power consumption.

Chemical vapor sensors are known which are based on conjugated conducting polymers. Such polymers exhibit the optoelectronic properties of inorganic semiconductors or metals. However, the poor environmental stability associated with most conjugated polymers has precluded their use in practical applications.”

[Dai and Chen, US Patent 8,133,465 (3/13/2012)]
