Abstract Achieving good sensitivity toward low ppm acetone with pronounced resolution is a challenging, yet very much required task for the development of breath analyzer to monitor diabetes in a non-invasive way. We were able to achieve high sensitivity, stability, ultrafast response toward sub-ppm acetone with a good resolution just by using MWCNTs as a substrate for nanocrystalline SnO 2 prepared through a facile sol-gel technique. The composites were well characterized using XRD and TEM… CONTINUE READING
