Paper Abstract

A system for detection of volatile compounds has been developed based on the concept of an electronic nose. The detection mechanism relies on the change in electrical resistance that occurs when a conducting polymer sensing element is exposed to the gaseous sample. An array of such sensors in conjunction with pattern recognition data analysis are used to identify and quantify the compounds of interest.
