Monitoring the hazardous and noxious substances (HNS) is a very important issue for mitigating the influence of catastrophic accidents in ocean and coastal areas. However, research on the HNS sensor is just in the beginning stage. In this study, we proposed a new HNS sensor using a printed ITO layer. We carried out a series of experiments of detecting the NH4OH and seawater solution to investigate the feasibility as a HNS sensor. The resistance of ITO layer dropped abruptly when it soaked into the solutions. The resistance change (δR) was linearly correlated with the NH4OH concentration of the solution, also it can be classified into two states; one is the transition stage, the other is the stabilized stage. The former is considered to be caused by the large capacitance of the electrical double layer (EDL) on the ITO surface. Also, the ITO layer showed considerable chemical stability within our experimental condition. In this paper, we have investigated the feasibility of printed ITO layer as a sensitive and cheap HNS sensor.
