Dr Karum, Now Prof. Karum at 
Birla Institute of Technology and Science, posed an interesting question. Can we improve the sensitivity of detection of analytes using a different transduction method?  For this purpose, interdigitated electrode (IDE)-based capacitors and quartz crystal microbalance (QCM)-based resonators were coated with a zeolitic–imidazolate framework (ZIF-8) metal–organic framework thin films as the sensing material and applied to the sensing of the volatile organic compound acetone.
