This work consists in a study of an alternative material to be use for the development of ammonia sensors. The humin is extracted from peat with centrifugation of KOH or NaOH solutions. The humin consists basically of carbon. The powder of humin is a porous material, similar to zeolita, and it is partly solubilized in water. The solubilized humin is deposited on a flexible polyester substrate and dried in an oven at 80ºC for 20...
