Topical 9: Sensors (T9)

#594 - Environmental, Catalytic, Industrial and Virtual Sensors (T9005)
This session focuses on sensors for environmental monitoring, process control and chemical industry applications. Environmental monitoring plays a major role in assessment and then minimization of harm that chemical processing does to our environment, and thus to ourselves. This includes sensors for determination of short and long term chemical exposure, and contamination levels of air and water streams. Sensors in process streams as part of industrial safety and environmentally conscious designs are a focus. Investigation of surface chemistry and catalysis in relation to sensor sensitivity and selectivity is also a focus. Cost-benefit assessment and technical challenges in the industrial setting will be welcome. Papers on virtual sensors, such as the e-nose, are also invited.
