A facile electro-netting process is used to prepare 2D polyacrylic acid nano-nets that comprise interlinked ultrathin nanowires with diameters of 10–30 nm. The versatile nano-nets create enhanced interconnectivity and additional surface area and facilitate the diffusion of analytes into the membranes, which significantly boost the gas diffusion coefficient and sensing properties.
