Abstract
We propose to develop a novel class of sensor materials based on chemically functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The proposed materials will be utilized in chemiresistor microarrays for improved detection of small molecule gases with reduced signal drift and extended lifetime. In addition, through chemical functionalization of the SWNTs their sensor properties can be tailored for enhanced sensitivity against small gas molecules. This concept exploits the unique electronic properties of SWNTs together with the tremendous potential of chemistry to modulate their electrical response to specific analytes.
