CeO 2-Fe 2O 3 thin films with different Ce/Fe ratios have been tested as alcohol gas sensors. The microstructure, acid-base properties and reactivity of CeO 2-Fe 2O 3 powders were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), temperature programmed desorption of adsorbed CO 2 (TPD-CO 2) and gas-phase oxidation of alcohols, respectively. The addition of Ce to Fe 2O 3 modify the particles size distribution, surface basicity, electrical conductivity and the catalytic activity in the oxidation of methanol and ethanol. These factors have been discussed and correlated with the electrical response of CeO 2-Fe 2O 3 mixed oxides to both alcohols

Abstract

CeO 2-Fe 2O 3 thin films with different Ce/Fe ratios have been tested as alcohol gas sensors. The microstructure, acid-base properties and reactivity of CeO 2-Fe 2O 3 powders were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), temperature programmed desorption of adsorbed CO 2 (TPD-CO 2) and gas-phase oxidation of alcohols, respectively. The addition of Ce to Fe 2O 3 modify the particles size distribution, surface basicity, electrical conductivity and the catalytic activity in the oxidation of methanol and ethanol. These factors have been discussed and correlated with the electrical response of CeO 2-Fe 2O 3 mixed oxides to both alcohols
