The rapid growth of science and technology in energy and environmental fields has enlightened the substantial importance of
the conducting polymer and metal composite materials engineered at nano-scale. This is particularly manifested in the design and synthesis
of novel sensor materials to achieve the desired morphology and property. Here, a brief review is presented about the recent works
and advances on tailoring nano-scale architectures of the nanostructured conducting polymer and metal composite materials towards enhanced
sensing activity and durability for the gas vapor, chemical reagent and biochemical reagent. The representative synthesis strategies
and sensor prototypes are highlighted with the focus placed on synthesis, characterization and sensor property development.
Keywords: Conducting Polymer, Metal, Nanocomposites, Sensor, Synthesis.
