Title: Versatile materials for use as chemically sensitive interfaces in SAW-based sensor arrays

Abstract

The primary research objective of the work described here is to design, synthesize, and characterize new materials for use as chemical sensor interfaces, integrate these materials, using appropriate transducers, into sensor arrays, and then develop appropriate mathematical algorithms for interpreting the array response. In this paper, we will discuss two new types of materials we have developed that are ideally suited for use as chemically sensitive interfaces for array-based chemical sensing applications, since they: (1) provide general specificity towards classes of functional groups rather than individual compounds; (2) are intermediate in structure between monolayers and polymers; (3) exhibit both endo- and exo-recognition. The first class of materials is surface-confined dendrimers and the second is hyperbranched polymers.
