Polycrystalline graphene sensors are presented by Richard I. Masel and co-workers on page 53. The image shows polycrystalline graphene ribbon chemiresistors with gold contacts visualizing linear defects or wrinkles in the graphene. Floating or attached toluene molecules act as electron donors. Such defective graphene devices exhibit a higher chemical sensitivity than pristine graphene or carbon nanotube chemire-sistors.
