Applications of conducting polymers

The use of conducting electroactive polymers (CEPs) as active components in chemical sensors for environmental applications is particularly attractive as they can fulfil a number of critical roles in such devices, including sensing, signal production and transduction. This project aims to use an array of CEP electrodes and computer aided pattern recognition to monitor indoor air quality in new or refurbished offices, schools and homes with an emphasis on volatile organic pollutants, including plasticisers, formaldehyde from carpets, furniture, paints, glues etc.
