Abstract

The design of current sensor technology especially when related to the chemical still requires a certain degree of the quantitative reliability. The conventional chemical-related sensor may enable a cross sensitivity to happen as the chemical used as the parameter requires an ultra active electrode catalyst and a high operating potential for its oxidation. In this case, chemical substances that are more easily oxidised such as alcohol and carbon monoxide could interfere the sensitivity of the sensor. The chemical such as acetone is mostly to be found in the bodily fluid during the fasting period especially those who are in a diabetic condition. Along with glucose, the acetone level may also need to be monitored as it could indicate the severity of the diabetes. Thus a fibre optic sensor which is more inert to the oxidation reaction may be developed. Fibre optic sensor has gained much attention in the research field, as it is considered to be more sensitive, fast detection rate and reliable sensors. The development of fibre optic sensor on acetone detection by using beam-through technique could be a milestone in the health and sensor field.
