Chemical Sensors and Biosensors Summary

Chemical Sensors and Biosensors by Brian R. Eggins

Covering the huge developments in sensor technology and electronic sensing devices that have occurred in the last 10 years, this book uses an open learning format to encourage reader understanding of the subject. It is an invaluable distance learning book. It is applications orientated providing invaluable aid for anyone wishing to use chemical and biosensors. Key features and subjects covered include the following: sensors based on both electrochemical and photometric transducers; mass-sensitive sensors; thermal-sensitive sensors; performance factors for sensors; examples of applications; detailed case studies of five selected sensors; 30 discussion questions with worked examples and 80 self-assessment questions; and 140 explanatory diagrams. It also includes an extensive bibliography.

Chemical Sensors and Biosensors Reviews

"...It would be a valuable addition to university libraries..." (Chemistry in Britain, November 2002)) "...a useful contribution to introducing the subject to a wider range of analytical scientists..." (Chemistry & Industry, 3 March 2003) covers a wide range of sensoring systems accessible to a broad audience. (Metrohm Information, Vol.33, No.2 2004)
