Fabrication of Hierarchical SnO2 Nanocrystals and their Sensing Properties to Volatile Organic Compound Vapors

Abstract:

Article Preview

Hierarchical SnO2 (H-SnO2) and particulate SnO2 (P-SnO2) nanostructures were synthesized by a hydrothermal method with and without the aid of sodium 1-dodecanesulfonate (SDS), respectively. X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy were used to characterize the products obtained. The sensing properties of the H-SnO2 and P-SnO2 nanostructures to volatile organic compound gas (VOCs) were measured. The H-SnO2 sensors show better gas-sensing performance than the P-SnO2 sensors due to the hierarchical microstructure.
