This paper presents a feasibility study on the development of a gas preconcentrator based on micro-reactor technology on silicon. The objectives are to select a gas adsorbent material, to produce a silicon micro-reactor with an integrated heater, and finally to introduce the most suitable adsorbent into the micro-channels of the device. Preliminary results related to the characterization of a...
