	  abstract     = {Chemical detection is still a continuous challenge when
it comes to designing single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT)
sensors with high selectivity, especially in complex chemical
environments. A perfect example of such an environment would be in
thermally oxidized soybean oil. At elevated temperatures, oil oxidizes
through a series of chemical reactions which results in the formation of
monoacylglycerols, diacylglycerols, oxidized triacylglycerols, dimers,
trimers, polymers, free fatty acids, ketones, aldehydes, alcohols,
esters, and other minor products. In order to detect the rancidity of
oxidized soybean oil, carbon nanotube chemiresistor sensors have
been coated with polyethylenimine (PEI) to enhance the sensitivity
and selectivity. PEI functionalized SWCNTs are known to have a high
selectivity towards strong electron withdrawing molecules. The
sensors were very responsive to different oil oxidation levels and
furthermore, displayed a rapid recovery in ambient air without the
need of heating or UV exposure.},
