High Sensing Performance Toward Acetone Vapor Using TiO2 Flower-Like Nanomaterials

Nanoscale Res Lett. 2022 Sep 2;17(1):82. doi: 10.1186/s11671-022-03721-4.


For real-application gas sensors, high performances (response, selectivity, response/recovery time and stability) are demanded. An effective strategy is applying nanomaterials in gas sensors. In this study, the anatase TiO2 flower-like nanomaterials (FLNMs) are prepared through a one-step hydrothermal method which exhibit high-performance toward acetone vapor. TiO2 FLNMs sensors property are characterized at optimal working temperature of 330 °C with selectivity (acetone), response (S = 33.72 toward 250 ppm acetone), linear dependence (R2 = 0.9913), response/recovery time (46/24 s toward 250 ppm acetone) and long-term stability (30 days). These demonstrate that TiO2 FLNMs get a high performance for acetone sensor. Moreover, the limit of detection of acetone is 0.65 ppm which is lower than that of exhaled air for diabetes (0.8 ppm), indicating that TiO2 FLNMs gas sensor gets potential application in medical diagnosis.
