Among specific sensitive materials synthesized for chemical sensor development, cobalt corrole have shown attractive capabilities for CO detection [1, 2] . In this paper, we investigate the possibility to exploit such materials to develop surface acoustic wave (SAW)-based sensors. We actually demonstrate that SAW devices using delay line configuration allow investigating the molecular recognition occurring in non-conductive sensing layers of cobalt corroles. We have monitored phase variations

Moreover, a specific testing setup has been developed to precisely dose CO at low concentrations, to avoid any CO leakage in the environment, to systematically control environmental parameters and to allow regeneration of the trapping sites of CO.
