Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to introduce the reader to differential sensing, to detail the history of the electronic nose and tongue that led to the development of differential sensing, and to provide a spectrum of examples where differential sensing has been employed to classify and/or detect single analytes and mixtures of analytes. Using the information presented in this chapter, we hope to provide a solid background for the reader so that the differential sensing approach can be extrapolated to any desired chemical sensing purpose.
