Paper Abstract

The paper is devoted to the sensitive films for application in chemical sensors. These films, made of the sol-gel derived porous silica, were fabricated via a sol-gel dip-coating method. We have obtained silica layers of the minimum refractive index of ~ 1.22 and porosity ~47%. These layers were sensitized with a pH indocator - bromocresole purple. The indicator was introduced into porous silica layers by means of impregnation. Methods and results of characterization of porous silica films, before and after sensitization are presented in this paper. It was shown that films are very sensitive toward ammonia.
