CHAPTER 15

Ionic Liquids in Wearable Chemical Sensors

This chapter will consider case studies of where ionic liquids (ILs) have had a beneficial impact on optimising wearable sensing applications through (a) enhancement of the selectivity/specificity of analyte interactions, (b) enhancements of sensor performance, such as electrochemical response, and (c) the imparting of novel properties to material structure and assembly. Where ILs have already been incorporated into early wearable technologies, consideration of how these solutions might transition to real world requirements for man-worn sensors to provide a viable sensing concept is also discussed.
