The in-field detection of pollutants and the assessment of the quality of industrial exhausts and wastewaters are essential activities in the environmental management. Thus, the modern society continuously demands the development of cost-effective, quick, real-time, and reliable sensors. Membrane technology consists of a solid background for the development of advanced sensors to detect pollutants. In fact, highly selective membranes responsible for the molecular recognition and/or selective capture of target analyte(s) are the core of highly sensitive sensors. In this chapter, we discuss the implementation of membranes in sensors aimed to detect gaseous pollutants and elucidate the mechanism of detection. Also, the key features of membranes for the detection of nano/microplastics and pathogens, two of the trending emerging questions, are highlighted.
