Characterization of Graphene Oxide Thin Film According to Heat Treatment Condition for the Selective VOCs Sensing
Graphene oxide (GO) thin films were fabricated into thin film sensor for the selective VOCs detection. Different concentrations of GO aqueous solutions (6.2g/L and 5.0 g/L) were tested and thermally treated to obtain the appropriate sensing layer in terms of specific surface area and functional group. For the selectivity, it was assumed that different numbers and types of attached functional group of GO could induce the difference in gas adsorption, which may consequently derive to the selective VOCs detection. FE-SEM, XRD, and FTIR were utilized to characterize crystalline phase and functional group change by heat treatment condition and resistance measurements were followed. We suggest that thermally treated GO thin film sensor can be the alternative approach to achieve the improved selectivity in multiple gas detection by controlling the degree of gas adsorption.
