Abstract

Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in 1991 by S. Iijima, they have attracted the attention of many researchers due to the number of their unique properties such as high strength, good deformation elasticity, a wide range of electrical properties, chemical stability, etc. These properties allow using CNTs in many different applications. In particular, CNT is a promising material for gas sensor. Active works are carried out today in the field of their fabrication when CNTs are modified with metal oxide semiconductors. The topic of this paper is the synthesis of CNTs grown by Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and the investigation of the sensitivity of sensors made of nanocomposite CNT/SnO2 to isobutane gas.
