The matured technology of electronic noses and tongues makes it promising to utilize the technique of combining chemically diverse sensor multi-arrays with multi-component analysis tools and pattern recognition techniques for a wider range of medical and environmental applications. With a selfdesigned sensor system and flow cell setup-up we studied the capacitive response of a polydimethyl siloxane (PDMS) covered interdigitated electrode (IDE) sensor upon exposure to methyl tert-butyl ether (MtBE) contaminated MilliQ water and plain mineral...
