P1.4.11 Fabrication of LPG Sensors Based upon Chemically Tailored Sizes of Chromium Oxide Nanoparticles

Nipin Kohli, Onkar Singh, Ravi Chand Singh & Manmeet Pal Singh
In this work, an attempt has been made to alter the particle size of chromium oxide and then to investigate sensing behaviour of these Cr2O3 samples towards LPG. We have followed chemical route for synthesizing nanoparticles of chromium oxide. To tailor nanoparticles of chromium oxide, synthesis was carried out at various reaction temperatures namely, 5, 27 and 65°C. In order to understand the structure and morphology of synthesized materials; they were subjected to X-ray diffraction...
