Nanostructured materials for sensors and transducers are of great interest to the scientific community due to several advantages that these materials can provide (e.g., integration with large scale manufacturing technologies, enhanced performances, etc.). Nonetheless, large-area, low-cost and fast processing technologies for creating effective sensing nanostructures are still sought for. In this work, a recently described technique called Auxiliary Solvent-Based Sublimation-Aided NanoStructuring (ASB-SANS) has been used to generate poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT, a well known semiconducting polymer) nanofilamentary structures onto interdigitated electrodes. These have been tested as gas sensing layers for volatile organic compounds, delivering promising results.

Abstract

Nanostructured materials for sensors and transducers are of great interest to the scientific community due to several advantages that these materials can provide (e.g., integration with large scale manufacturing technologies, enhanced performances, etc.). Nonetheless, large-area, low-cost and fast processing technologies for creating effective sensing nanostructures are still sought for. In this work, a recently described technique called Auxiliary Solvent-Based Sublimation-Aided NanoStructuring (ASB-SANS) has been used to generate poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT, a well known semiconducting polymer) nanofilamentary structures onto interdigitated electrodes. These have been tested as gas sensing layers for volatile organic compounds, delivering promising results.
