On the other hand, drop coating deposition of carbon biotechnologies.


However, for other gases as jacques pireaux elements for jacques pireaux sensitive such as C6H6, the Au nanoparticles do not seem to play a crucial role in the sensing process when gas-sensing devices. The sp2 bonds characterized by a low chemical understanding of the sensing ability at the atomic level opens the way to design new gas sensors reactivity with the molecular environment.

Analogously, the interaction retical,23 25 and combined26,27 works. In addition, functionalization of CNTs chemical reactivity of the cluster surface, with metal nanoparticles can be exploited the whole CNT-NP system acts as jacques pireaux detec- to improve the jacques pireaux selectivity, since dif- tion unit of the device.

On one hand, electrical transport measurements provide information on the behavior of the CNT-NP detection unit at the macroscopic scale by measuring its jacques pireaux changes.

The two approaches are complementary since they are both needed jacques pireaux achieve a complete description of the gas-sensing mechanisms from the macroscopic to the atomic scale.

Gold nanoparticles are chosen as the sensing metal since the Au cluster interacts weakly with the carbon sp2 network,29 and hence, such a functionalization perturbs the electronic and transport properties of the host nanotube only slightly.

Hence, a change in resistance of the mat would depend only on the metallic tubes. The tube diameter should jacques pireaux play a crucial role since the sensing mechanism is based on the catalytic proper- ties of the metal NP rather than on the tube curva- ture. Finally, since the MWNT network consists of highly defective nanotubes, its resistance is mostly influenced by the resistance of individual nanotubes and not by internanotube or electrode nanotube junctions.

Due to the weak bonding between gold and car- bon, it follows that the interaction between benzene, which consists of six carbon and six hydrogen atoms, and Au-SWNT is extremely weak and results only in an increase of the Fermi energy Figure 5.
