A novel method based on gas microsensors to analyze diesel engine oil contaminated by diluent unburned diesel fuel

We developed a novel method to detect the presence of unburned diesel fuel in used diesel fuel engine oil. The method is based on the use of an array of different gas microsensors based on metal oxide thin films deposited by sol-gel technique on Si substrates. The sensor array, exposed to the volatile chemical species of different diesel fuel engine oil… CONTINUE READING
