Comparison of vapor sensing properties of pristine and hexamethylene diamine-treated MWCNT networks to primary, secondary and tertiary alcohols
MetadataShow full item record
The sensing properties of pristine and hexamethylene diamine (HDA)-treated multiwall carbon nanotube networks (MWCNT-Ns) to selected primary, secondary (sec-) and tertiary (ter-) alcohols were examined by resistance measurements. It was seen that sensor responses, S (%), of MWCNT (HDA)-N to these alcohols were much higher than those of the pristine network. An increase in the S (%) values per mm Hg of both networks was observed from propanol to butanol, when their values from primary alcohols to sec-/tert-ones decreased due to the change in the interaction area of these alcohols with the MWCNT-Ns.
