Abstract

Hexagonal tungsten oxide (h-WO3) was prepared by annealing hexagonal ammonium tungsten bronze, (NH4)0.07(NH3)0.04(H 2O)0.09WO2.95. The structure, composition and morphology of h-WO3 were studied by XRD, XPS, Raman, 1H MAS (magic angle spinning) NMR, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and BET-N2 specific surface area measurement, while its thermal stability was investigated by in situ XRD. The h-WO3 sample was built up by 50-100 nm particles, had an average specific surface area of 8.3 m2/g and was thermally stable up to 450 °C. Gas sensing tests showed that h-WO3 was sensitive to various levels (10-50 ppm) of NH3, with the shortest response and recovery times (1.3 and 3.8 min, respectively) to 50 ppm NH3. To this NH3 concentration, the sensor had significantly higher sensitivity than h-WO3 samples prepared by wet chemical methods.
