An ‘electronic nose’ that can sniff out gas leaks

Quantum Team Gas leak checks are usually performed with a handheld instrument. Now, scientists at the Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore, are developing an “electronic nose” for this task, using nanomaterials. S Venugopal, associate professor in the department of chemical engineering at IISc, is working with ISRO to develop hydrogen gas sensors using nanopalladium. Nanomaterials … Read more
