Preparation and Characterization of Porous Alumina Film Using Sol Containing PEG
To obtain porous alumina films, the precursor sol was prepared by hydrolysis of Al isopropoxide and then mixing with poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG). The porous alumina films were fabricated by dip-coating technique on glass substrates and heating at 500 °C. The film was composed of nano sized particles (30-50 nm). The maximum thickness of the film prepared by one-run dip-coating was ca. 1000 nm. The film had humidity-sensitive electrical resistance at room temperature.
