Hydrophobicity Modulating Underwater Chemical Sensor

Organization: 

National University of Singapore, Industry Liaison Office, Singapore, SG

I.P. Brief: 

The Invention related to a novel design for a small inexpensive, low-power chemical sensor that works while submerged in water by utilizing changes in hydrophobicity upon exposure to the analyte, consisting of micro/nano size hydrophobic structures distributed on to conductive electrodes, which the increased hydrophilicity leads to conduction (detection).
