Designing devices such as sensors with enhanced functionality and a wide range of applications, will require advance printing techniques that includes innovative and/or integrated processes. This is realized by printing functional materials such as ink, paste, polymer, ceramic, powder, and organic materials. Additive manufacturing also known as 3D printing fits into such description. Taking advantage of the tremendous versatility associated with in situ photopolymerization, 3D printing predominantly targets the production of polymeric parts and models. Gas sensors are crucial in industrial safety monitoring, environmental pollution control, food safety monitoring and many other applications. The goal of this research is to utilize bottom-up approach of additive manufacturing techniques to fabricate multilayer structures with functional nanomaterials to design polymer-based gas sensors. This is achieved by using monomeric and polymeric materials such as polyaniline, polypyrrole and polythiophene and their derivatives as active layers.
