Flame synthesis of ceramic oxide films as highly selective gas sensors for breath analysis of acetone (e.g. tracer for lipolysis) and NH3 (e.g. tracer for the treatment of end stage renal disease) will be presented. The performance of such sensors for monitoring body fat burning during gym work-out will be demonstrated. Sensing at ppb of the far more challenging breath isoprene by pre-separation will be discussed as time permits.
