Semiconductor catalysts based on Surface Modified Nanomaterials (SNMs) for Sensors

Ewelina and co-authors had a chapter accepted1 to the book “Surface Modified Nanomaterials for Applications in Catalysis: Fundamentals, Methods and Applications”, edited by Manoj Gawande, Chaudhery Mustansar Hussain, and Yusuke Yamauchi, and to be published by Elsevier some time during next year.

A brief description of the chapter reads as:

Semiconductor catalysts are a group of materials that possess a preferable combination of electronic structure, superb charge transport characteristics, excellent optical properties, and increased adsorption capacity, making possible its application in the electronics industry. Therefore, semiconducting nanomaterials are of great interest in sensing-based devices such as electrochemical sensors, optical sensors, or gas adsorptive sensors. It is
considered that further advances in sensing technologies can arise from the development of the functional structures based on nanostructured semiconductors. The surface functionalisation of these nanomaterial-based catalysts, including metal oxides, chalcogenides, ternary and quaternary semiconductors, allows boosting their properties depending on the application. Although several reviews address the recent development in nanomaterials’ synthesis and functionalisation for sensor application, they are limited to a selected group of semiconductors. Our chapter summarises the fabrication of various semiconductor nanomaterials (0D, 1D, 2D, and 3D) in terms of their sensing properties
