This communication presents results on the feasibility of an inkjet printed chemical gas sensor suitable for a real time multi-sensing platform. The prototype targets volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as ethanol vapor to monitor environmental pollution. The designed and ink-jet printed microwave sensor is presented. Preliminary results have shown the influence of ethanol vapor on the electrical properties of the sensor at microwave frequency range. The sensor's sensitivity to ethanol vapor has been estimated to −2.48 kHz/ppm. The final aim of this work is to develop a low cost sensor for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
