In this letter, the possibility to use single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) as sensitive nanostructured material for the development of an optoelectronic sensor that can perform chemical detection in water has been investigated and demonstrated for the first time. The fabricated sensor has been employed in a reflectometric system involving single wavelength reflectance measurements. The good stability of the steady-state signal, the high sensitivity, as well as the good response dynamics obtained in the case of toluene detection confirm the potentiality of SWCNTs to be employed in a water environment.
