Polyaniline Nanofiber Composite Materials: New Chemical Sensors for Phosgene

Tech ID: 23697 / UC Case 2008-717-0


Professor Kaner and colleagues have developed a sensor with polyaniline polymers for the detection of phosgene (COCl2), a colorless, highly toxic gas that has been used in chemical warfare as well as in industrial processes for polyurethanes. The approach provides a sensitive (ppb) method to detecting this highly poisonous gas.
