Abstract


  • Single crystalline copper oxide nanoribbons were synthesized via a surfactant-assisted hydrothermal

    route. The resulting CuO nanoribbons contain substantial amounts of nanorings and nanoloops. High

    resolution TEM analysis identified CuO nanoribbons growing along the [010] direction. CuO

    nanoribbons exhibited excellent sensing performance towards formaldehyde and ethanol vapours with

    rapid response and high sensitivity at low operating temperatures. We found that the loading of a small

    amount of Au or Pt nanoparticles on the surface of CuO nanoribbons can effectively enhance and

    functionalize the gas sensing performance of CuO nanoribbons.
