Piezoelectric Chemical Sensors (IUPAC Technical Report)

R. P. Buck, E. Lindner, W. Kutner, and G. Inzelt

Pure and Applied Chemistry
Vol. 76, No. 6, pp. 1139–1160 (2004)

The rapid expansion of the field of piezoelectric sensing devices, within the larger area of chemical sensors and biosensors, requires improved classification and characterization of relevant concepts and principles. This report addresses mostly the application of piezoelectric sensing devices in electroanalytical chemistry based on the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) technology, and it has been coordinated with relevant documents of physics and electrical engineering. Basic terms and definitions related to piezoelectric materials and sensing devices, electric transducers, and analytical measurements with piezoelectric chemical sensors are provided. In addition, the more essential response equations are presented.
