A Flexible and Polymer-Based Chemiresistive CO2 Gas Sensor at Room Temperature

Advanced Materials Technologies 2023 Volume 8, Issue 10, Article 2201510

CO2 sensing is important in many applications ranging from air-quality monitoring to food packaging. In this study, an amine-functionalized copolymer, poly(N-[3-(dimethylamino)propyl]-methacrylamide-co-2-N-morpholinoethyl methacrylate) (p(D-co-M)) is synthesized, offering moderate basicity suitable for a wide CO2 detection range. Taking advantage of this characteristic of p(D-co-M), this polymer is used for designing a chemiresistive, low-cost, flexible, and reversible CO2 sensor. The p(D-co-M)-based sensors show a noticeable decrease in their direct current resistance and alternating current impedance upon exposure to a wide range of CO2 concentration (1–100%) at room temperature with a response and a recovery time of 6 and 14 min, respectively. Additionally, the…

A Polymer-Based Chemiresistive Gas Sensor for Selective Detection of Ammonia Gas

Advanced Sensor Research 2024 Volume 3, Issue 1, Article 2300125

Breath analysis is a non-invasive tool used in medical diagnosis. However, the current generation of breath analyzers is expensive, time-consuming, and requires sample gas separation. In this work, a simple, yet effective, low-cost ammonia gas sensor based on poly(2-acrylamido-2-methyl-1-propanesulfonic acid) is presented for non-invasive medical diagnosis. The designed sensor has a broad detection range to ammonia gas up to 1000 ppm with a limit of detection of 30 ppb. This is a robust sensor, which functions at high relative humidity (RH) (>90%) and exhibits consistent electrical responses under different test conditions. The result of a blind test validates the sensor’s…

Electrical Response of Poly(N-[3-(dimethylamino)Propyl] Methacrylamide) to CO2 at a Long Exposure Period

ACS Omega 2022 Volume 7, Pages 22232-22243

Amine-functionalized polymers (AFPs) are able to react with carbon dioxide (CO2) and are therefore useful in CO2 capture and sensing. To develop AFP-based CO2 sensors, it is critical to examine their electrical responses to CO2 over long periods of time, so that the device can be used consistently for measuring CO2 concentration. To this end, we synthesized poly(N-[3-(dimethylamino)propyl] methacrylamide) (pDMAPMAm) by free radical polymerization and tested its ability to behave as a CO2-responsive polymer in a transducer. The electrical response of this polymer to CO2 upon long exposure times was measured in both the aqueous and solid phases. Direct current…
