In this review molecular field-effect transistors are described and compared with their gate-modified inorganic counterparts. The different processes involved in gas sensing are summarized. The advantages of transistors on resistors are demonstrated. The sensitivity of molecular field-effect transistors to strong oxidizing species, for example ozone, is detailed and compared with their sensitivity to humidity and volatile organic compounds. Application to ozone monitoring in urban atmospheres is also described.
