Warmest congratulations on the success of the 1st International Electronic Conference on Chemical Sensors and Analytical Chemistry (CSAC2021). Many thanks for your participation.

The winners of the conference awards have been announced on the part of 'Award Winners Announcement'.

All accepted extended abstracts will be published as one dedicated volume in MDPI Chemistry Proceedings(ISSN: 2673-4583).

Participants are cordially invited to contribute with a full manuscript to our Special Issue 'Selected Papers from 1st International Electronic Conference on Chemical Sensors and Analytical Chemistry (CSAC2021)' in the journal Chemosensors (submission deadline: 31 January 2022).

See you at the next edition!


Welcome from the Chair

Welcome from the Conference Chairs of the 1st International Electronic Conference on Chemical Sensors and Analytical Chemistry (CSAC2021)

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to join the 1st International Electronic Conference on Chemical Sensors and Analytical Chemistry (CSAC2021) that will be hosted online from 1 to 15 July 2021 at https://sciforum.net/conference/CSAC2021.

What can be foreseen is that chemical sensors will play a continued and critical role in our society. In particular, in recent years, the dangers posed by biological agents and naturally occurring agents like SARS-CoV-2 have fully materialized from just a conceptual threat on the horizon to the currently realized global pandemic. So how to monitor and detect these agents has been becoming increasingly important. There has never been a greater need for (chemo)sensors, and, just like every other technology we need to develop, it all starts with research and the dissemination and sharing of that research in a scholarly form.

The scope of this online conference is to get together worldwide well-known experts who are currently working in chemical sensor technologies and to provide an online forum for presenting and discussing new results.

Throughout this event, we aim to cover, among others, the following topics:

  • Electrochemical Devices and Sensors
  • Optical Chemical Sensors
  • Mass-Sensitive Sensors
  • Materials for Chemical Sensing
  • Nano- and Micro-Technologies for Sensing
  • Chemical Assay and Validation
  • Chemical Sensor Applications
  • Analytical Methods
  • Gas Sensors and Apparatus
  • Electronic Noses
  • Electronic Tongues
  • Microfluidic Devices
  • Lab-on-a-chip
  • Single-Molecule Sensing
  • Nanosensors
  • Medico-Diagnostic Testing

We hope you will join us and present your work at CSAC to be part of this stimulating online experience.

Kind regards,
Prof. Dr. Nicole Jaffrezic-Renault

Title: ‘Electrolyte-gated field-effect transistors for monitoring photosynthetic activity’ Electrolyte-gated field-effect transistors (EGFETs) are now well-known, in particular for biosensing applications. They are capacitively coupled i.e., driven by changes in capacitance at the electrolyte/gate or electrolyte/semiconductor interface. As for all field-effect transistors, any current flowing at the gate electrode is seen as a drawback. However, it is interesting to compare the operating principle of such transistors to that of organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) that switch on and off triggered by a gate current caused by a faradaic reaction. We will demonstrate here that not only the gate potential can trigger the source-drain current of EGFETs, but that the current flowing at the gate can also be used. Because EGFETs can work directly in water, and as an example of application, we will demonstrate the possibility to monitor photosynthesis from microorganisms, through the electroreduction, on the gate, of the oxygen produced. Two materials were used: an organic semiconductor, to make an EGOFET, or reduced graphene oxide to make an EGGFET. Also, two architectures were used: a liquid electrolyte (simply water), or a hydrogel immobilized onto the gate. In this case, the cyanobacteria were entrapped into the hydrogel. A final application could be the detection of water pollutants. The presence of herbicides such as diuron or glyphosate, which strongly affect the cyanobacteria’s photosynthetic activity, were efficiently detected using these devices. We will also show that such devices can be entirely obtained by fabrication processes such as printing.

Benoît Piro is full professor in Université de Paris (France), Chemistry department. He developed various kinds of electrochemical biosensors directed to target molecules such as miRNA, proteins, peptides, antibodies, organic pollutants and participated in their economic valorization through several collaborations with biotech companies. Beyond conventional electrochemical sensors, he developed organic electronic devices e.g., organic field effect transistors and more precisely electrolyte-gated OFETs and graphene FETs (GFETs) able to operate in aqueous media, paving the way for applications in the medical or environmental fields. He also developed a number of flexible printed devices using inkjet-, screen- or dispensing- printing, for chemical and physical sensing.

Title: ‘Ingestible gas sensing capsules’ Ingestible sensors are powerful tools for monitoring human health. Such ingestible sensors have been developed for monitoring pH and pressure readings or monitor medication. As a breakthrough in the field of smart ingestible sensors, we have developed and commercialized an ingestible capsule that can assess the chemical compositions of the gut. Here a series of human pilot trials of an ingestible electronic capsule that can sense oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide will be reported. The capsule uses a combination of thermal conductivity and semiconducting sensors, and their selectivity and sensitivity to different gases is controlled by adjusting the heating elements of the sensors. Gas profiles of the subjects were obtained while modulating gut microbial fermentative activities by altering their intake of dietary fibre. Ultrasound imaging confirmed that the oxygen-equivalent concentration profile could be used as an accurate marker for the location of the capsule. Regional fermentation patterns could be defined via hydrogen gas profiles. Our gas capsule offers an accurate and safe tool for monitoring the effects of diet of individuals, and has the potential to be used as a diagnostic tool for the gut.

Like papers presented on the conference, participants will be able to ask questions and make comments about the posters. Posters can be presented without an accompanying proceedings paper and will be available online on this website during and after the e-conference. However, they will not be added to the proceedings of the conference. For detailed instructions on how to submit a poster, please contact us at csac2021@mdpi.com.

Proceedings Template
Submission: Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.sciforum.net/login by registering and logging in.
Accepted File Formats
  • MS Word: Manuscripts prepared in MS Word must be converted into a single file before submission. When preparing manuscripts in MS Word, the Electronic Conference on Surfaces, Coatings and Interfaces Microsoft Word template file (see download below) must be used. Please do not insert any graphics (schemes, figures, etc.) into a movable frame which can superimpose the text and make the layout very difficult.
  • LaTeX: Manuscripts prepared in LaTeX must be collated into one ZIP folder (include all source files and images, so that the Conference Secretariat can recompile the submitted PDF). When preparing manuscripts in LaTeX, please use the 6th Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications LaTeX template files.
Potential Conflicts of Interest

It is the authors' responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research. If there is no conflict, please state here 'The authors declare no conflict of interest.' This should be conveyed in a separate 'Conflict of Interest' statement preceding the 'Acknowledgments' and 'References' sections at the end of the manuscript. Financial support for the study must be fully disclosed under 'Acknowledgments' section.

Copyright

MDPI, the publisher of the Sciforum.net platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting a Communication paper to this conference, you retain the copyright of your paper, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this paper online on the Sciforum.net platform. This means you can easily submit your paper to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher (if required by that publisher).
