Development of printed sensors for taste sensing

The paper presents an idea of developing taste sensors using novel printed sensors. The raw materials used for developing the sensors were commercial polymer films. Powered graphene was produced using laser induction technique. This powder was separately transferred to Kapton tapes to developed flexible graphene sensors. The fabricated sensors were tested with different chemicals having specific attributes with the idea to develop a taste sensor. Three different types of chemicals were tested and analyzed to verify the ability of the developed sensor patch to differentiate between the individual chemicals. The initial results have provided a significant platform in the process of developing a fully functionalized taste sensing system.

The research reported in this paper has been assisted by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, for providing the facilities to fabricate the sensor patches. They would also thank Macquarie University, Australia for providing the optimum laboratory conditions for performing the experiments. Ethics approval was not required for the conducted experiments or the reported experimental results. This is because the experiments were performed in aqueous without the involvement of any living organism.
