Electrospinning – A Candidate for Fabrication of Semiconducting Tungsten Oxide Nanofibers
The excellent gas sensing properties of the tungsten oxides have been manifested first of all in nanostructure and 1D, and 2D open structured forms. For optimal performance the sensing layer substrates should be of large specific surface. In this paper we report on electrospinning – a candidate for fabrication of large specific surface tungsten oxide nanofibers. Fibrous tissues doped with tungstic acid hydrate (H2WO4.H2O) and tungsten oxide one third hydrate (WO3.1/3H2O) has been created and characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive spectroscopy in order to learn about the changes the materials suffer during the process.
