A chemical sensor is an essential component of an analyzer. Chemical sensor is a device that transforms chemical information, ranging from the concentration of a specific sample component to total composition analysis, into an analytically useful signal. Chemical sensors contain two basic functional units: a receptor part and a transducer part. Some sensors may include a separator which is a membrane. The ideal chemical sensor is an inexpensive, portable, foolproof device that responds with perfect and instantaneous selectivity to a particular target chemical substance (analyte) present in any desired medium in order to produce a measurable signal output at any required analyte concentration. Such ideal chemical sensors, however, are far from reality in spite of enormous advances over the past decades. Chemical sensors in actuality are complex devices, generally optimized for a particular application.
