Study Findings on Chemical Sensors and Actuators Are Outlined in Reports from Chongqing University (A novel optical chemical sensor based AuNR-MTPP and dyes for lung cancer biomarkers in exhaled breath identification)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Data detailed on Chemical Sensors and Actuators have been presented. According to news reporting originating from Chongqing, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "In this work, the gold nanorod (AuNR) was prepared by the seed mediated growth method and characterized by SEM and UV-vis spectrum. MTPP-AuNR nanocomposites were synthetized by solution co-blending method and used to fabricate an optical chemical sensor for identification of lung cancer biomarkers in exhaled breath (VOCs: decane, undecane, hexanal, heptanal, benzene and 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene)."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Chongqing University, "Series of color difference maps of six VOCs were obtained, and principal component analysis (PCA) and hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA) were used for further data analysis. The results demonstrated that VOCs could be identified rapidly and accurately by the novel sensor due to the modest sensitivity and selectivity of sensitive materials for VOCs."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This noninvasive, low cost and fast method could be used for wide-spread screening for lung cancer in the high-risk groups."
