About the book

Nanowires and materials have varied properties currently being exploited to develop new and emerging technologies. The sensing properties of nanomaterials have and continue to be variously used for the development of sensors and sensing technologies for multiple detections. These developed sensing platforms are utilized in various fields and industries such the agriculture, medical, food, manufacturing, and other servicing sectors for theft detection, prevention of adulteration for profiteering, pollution monitoring, food safety, and quality monitoring among others, all to safeguard health threats to humanity and consequent effects on the environment and its sustainability for future generations. This book aims to solicit the collection of chapters focused on the use of nanowires-materials coupled with other techniques such as chemometrics, algorithms, and programming tools to improve and innovate technologies in the area of sensing. The book is expected to delve into sensing techniques and platforms that hold promise for industrial applications and processes.
