  • Detection of toxic gases using a composite of single-walled carbon nanotubes with polyaniline

    We reported on the response behaviours of a composite sensor of SWNTs with polyaniline to detect noxious gases at room temperature. The SWNT-polyaniline composite synthesised was found to be high-quality with good uniformity. A combination of photolithography and a lift-off process was utilised to fabricate 100-nm thick Pd electrodes on drop-cast SWNT-polyaniline composite. The composite-based ...
