Our recent work on carbon monoxide sensors has been accepted and labeled hot paper at the prestigious Agnew Chem journal.  Hot Papers are chosen by the Editors for their importance in a rapidly evolving field of high current interest. This work is in collaboration with Prof. Tim Swager at MIT and Prof Xixiang Zhang at KAUST and is funded through a grant from KAUST's sensors initiative.  We developed an amperometric platform for the detection of CO with voltage-modulated sensitivity using the bio-inspired interaction between CO and iron porphyrin. Our sensors function in oxygenated and humid conditions and have sensitivities to meet the limits of detection required by  OSHA.
