Chemical sensors are devices that transform chemical information or data into analytical signals. Commonly chemical signals are in the form of concentration of a sample, component fractions and others. These signals may originate from a reaction or from the physical property of the material to be analyzed. These sensors differ from physical sensors as they analyze chemical, properties, component fraction, signal processing, sample transport and sampling whereas physical sensors provides information of physical properties. Chemical sensors include two basic functioning units namely a...
