In particular, during 2000-2007 years his scientific team was involved in eight international projects financed by EC (INCO-Copernicus and INTAS Programs), USA (CRDF, CRDF-MRDA Programs) and NATO (LG Program). 2007-2008 years he was an invited scientist in Korea Institute of Energy Research (Daejeon) in the frame of Brain Pool Program. Currently starting from 2008 year Dr. G. Korotcenkov is a research professor of Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) in Korea.
Specialists from Former Soviet Union know G. Korotcenkov’s research results in the field of study of Schottky barriers, MOS structures, native oxides, and photoreceivers on the base of III-Vs compounds very well. His present scientific interests starting from 1995 year include material sciences, focusing on metal oxide film deposition and characterization, surface science, porous materials, and gas sensor design. G. Korotcenkov is the author or editor of twenty nine books and special issues, including 11 volume “Chemical Sensors” series published by Momentum Press (USA), 10 volume “Chemical Sensors” series published by Harbin Institute of Technology Press (China), and 2 volume “Handbook of Gas Sensor Materials” published by Springer (USA). He published seventeen review papers, nineteen book chapters, and more than 200 peer-reviewed articles (h-factor=33 (Scopus) and h=36 (Google scholar citation). A citation average for his papers, included in Scopus, is higher than 25. He is a holder of 18 patents. In most papers G. Korotchenkov is the first author. He presented more than 200 reports on the National and International conferences. G. Korotcenkov was co-organizer of several conferences. His research activities are honored by Award of the Supreme Council of Science and Advanced Technology of the Republic of Moldova (2004), The Prize of the Presidents of Ukrainian, Belarus and Moldovan Academies of Sciences (2003), Senior Research Excellence Award of Technical University of Moldova (2001; 2003; 2005), Fellowship from International Research Exchange Board (1998), National Youth Prize of the Republic of Moldova (1980), among others.

Sensing materials play a key role in the successful implementation of chemical sensors, which can be applied for the automation of myriad industrial processes, as well as for everyday monitoring of such activities as public safety, engine performance, medical therapeutics, and many more. The world of sensing materials is very broad. Our main idea was to create really useful encyclopedia-handbook of chemical sensing materials.

Nanomaterials and nanotechnology are new fields of science and technology. Nanotechnology is still in its infancy, because nanotechnology has become a hot area globally since a few years ago. However, it is expected that nanotechnology will dramatically change operating characteristics of chemical sensors and will probably gain in importance in all fields of sensor application over the next ten to twenty years. It was found that with reduction in size, novel electrical, mechanical, chemical, catalytic and optical properties can be introduced.

The market of chemical sensors continues to grow at a rapid rate, reflecting the wide range of possibilities in improvement in technological processes in industry and agriculture and conditions of our life that can be enhanced by the use of chemical sensors. The military, medicine, airspace, and security markets also continue to drive the research and development in this area. At present it is hard to imagine the area, where chemical sensors would be useless.
