Paper Abstract

In this paper, we study a novel chemical gas sensor based on polymer-carbon black composites for NO2 gas-sensing application. The polymer which is made of polyhexylthiophene mixed with carbon black is employed as the sensing material which is immobilized on the interdigitated microelectrode pair. The electric resistance changes of the sensor to NO2 at different concentrations have been examined. Also the effect of the humidity to the sensor was examined. The results show that the resistance of the sensor decreases with the NO2 concentration rising, and it's not sensitive to the humidity.
