How to choose a gas sensor ? Alcohol sensor is semiconductor sensor for alcohol detection
Grove - Alcohol Sensor is a complete alcohol sensor module for Arduino or Seeeduino. It is built with MQ303A semiconductor alcohol sensor. It has good sensitivity and fast response to alcohol. It is suitable for making Breathalyzer. This Grove implements all the necessary circuitry for MQ303A like power conditioning and heater power supply. This sensor outputs a voltage inversely proportional to the alcohol concentration in air.
We've released the Seeed Gas Sensor Selection Guide, it will help you choose the gas sensor that best suits your needs.

Hi there~Normarlly, if a sensor does not need a library in Arduino,then it does not need a library in micro:bit either.So you can use HCHO and Alcohol with micro:bit.Regards
Hi there~ Please plug this sensor into baseshield,plug the baseshild into the arduino,and connect the the arduino to you computer via USB cable, then you need to update the code and keep the code running for 48 hours. For more detail,please refer to our wiki. Regards ================================================================ http://wiki.seeedstudio.com/Grove-Alcohol_Sensor/
