In this study, we reported an odor visualization system that can be used to visualize the spatial distribution of odors in environment. The sensing mechanism is based on the fluorescent intensity change caused by interactions between a fluorescent probe and odor molecules. A high sensitive CCD camera records the fluorescent quenching or enhancing and the odors are visualized by using an image processing software. In order to increase the sensitivity and selectivity of the visualization sensing film, novel fluorescent probes based on molecularly-imprinted-polymer (MIP) fluorescent nanobeads are developed and their visualization effects are introduced in this work.
