Abstract

We aimed to develop a device for detecting very low concentrations of skin-emitted acetone (skin acetone) toward self-monitoring of fat metabolisms in our daily life. Skin acetone analysis is expected to be a powerful tool to prevent and alleviate lifestyle-related diseases, however existing methods lack in repeated use and require large-sized apparatus. We propose to use a zeolite array as a concentrator of skin acetone to relieve the requirements for the detector sensitivity, and showed that it can produce more than tenfold concentrated skin acetones. Our results will help to open the way for a wearable skin acetone analyzer.
