Bi3FeMo2O12 (BFM, Bismuth iron molybdate) was prepared by wet chemical method by using metal nitrates and ammonium molybdate as a precursor and the powder was heated up to 700°C for 24 h. Silver nitrate was added up to 5 and 10 mol % to BFM.compound. BFM:Ag2O3 composites with mol ratios of 100:0 (BFM–1), 95:5(BFM–2) and 90:10 (BFM–3) were prepared and their humidity sensitivity measurements were studied. The composites were characterized by X–ray diffraction (XRD) and...
