Synopsis:
This is a modern introductory book on sensors, combining underlying theory with bang up to date topics such as nanotechnology and electronic noses. The text is suitable for graduate students and research scientists with little background in analytical chemistry. It is user-friendly, with accessible theoretical approach of the basic principles, and adequate references to further reading. The book covers up-to-date advances in the sensor field, e.g. nanotechnology, microfluidics, lab-on-a-chip, and quantum dots. It includes calculation exercises and solutions, and contains a guide to Laboratory Exercises essential for course instructors and for experimental projects. An accompanying website contains colour illustrations and Powerpoint slides.

Synopsis:
In a volume produced by the Club Micro Capteurs Chimiques (Chemical Microsensors Club) at the University of La Rochelle, chemists from across France examine fundamental and technological aspects of different kinds of sensors. Among the topics are chemical and biological recognition, metal oxide gas sensors, responses and electrical properties of gas microsensors, developing micro-preconcentrators for detecting gaseous species at trace levels, in vivo analyses with electrochemical microsensors, and biofuel cells.

Synopsis:
A thorough, accessible, and general overview of chemosensors

Providing a comprehensive overview of chemosensors—organic molecules designed to bind and sense small molecules or metal ions—and their applications, Chemosensors: Principles, Strategies, and Applications is an accessible one-stop resource for analysts, clinicians, and graduate students studying advanced chemistry and chemosensing.

Chemosensors function on a molecular level, generating a signal upon binding. The book reviews their synthesis, design, and applications for detecting biological and organic molecules as well as metal ions. The text highlights applications in drug discovery and catalyses that have not been well covered elsewhere.

Covering such topics as molecular recognition, detection methods, design strategies, and important biological issues, the book is broken into four sections that examine intermolecular interactions, strategies in sensor design, detection methods, and case studies in metal, saccharide, and amino acid sensing.

An indispensable source of information for chemical and biomedical experts using sensors, Chemosensors includes case studies to make the material both accessible and understandable to chemists of all backgrounds.

Handbook of biosensors and biosensor kinetics

Title:  Handbook of biosensors and biosensor kinetics
Author:  Sadana, Ajit
Call number: R857.B54S124H

Synopsis:
Biosensors are essential to an ever-expanding range of applications, including healthcare; drug design; detection of biological, chemical, and toxic agents; environmental monitoring; biotechnology; aviation; physics; oceanography; and the protection of civilian and engineering infrastructures. This book, like the previous five books on biosensors by this author (and one by the co-author), addresses the neglected areas of analyte-receptor binding and dissociation kinetics occurring on biosensor surfaces.

Topics are covered in a comprehensive fashion, with homogeneous presentation for the benefit of the reader. The contributors address the economic aspects of biosensors and incorporate coverage of biosensor fabrication and nanobiosensors, among other topics. The comments, comparison, and discussion presented provides a better perspective of where the field of biosensors is heading.
