Paper Abstract

The development of a simple, fast, disposable and low cost method for sensing and differentiating a wide range of concentration of toxic ammonia vapor by using colorimetric sensor is reported. A large dynamic range from 10 ppm to 1,00,000 ppm is successfully classified at ambient temperature with reproducible results. The CSA strip is consists of the dots of chemo-responsive materials, which are environmental friendly and react specifically with ammonia at different thresholds. The pattern of color change of colorimetric sensor array is unique for reported concentration range of ammonia gas.
