Abstract

Toxic metals are a signi cant cause for concern, considering freshwater the major route of their transport even far from point and di use sources. ¬ is paper presents a novel combined method using electrical measurements and microwave spectroscopy based on functionalised electromagnetic (f-EM) sensors. ¬ ick lms based on -Bi2O3 were screen-printed on planar sensors for monitoring continuously Zn concentrations in water. Results demonstrate the capability of this novel sensing system to measure in real-time Zn concentrations, especially in the range 0-1 mg/L and consequently the possibility to detect an unexpected pollution event, which can generate an increase of Zn in water.
