Abstract: 

For environmental monitoring and human safety, detection of toxic gases has received immense attention in recent times. Chemi-resistive type semiconducting oxide (SMO) gas sensors have a major market share in toxic gas sensing. The gas sensing performance of the SMO based sensor is primarily influenced by operating temperature and surface activity of the sensors material. This presentation will discuss and review the recent advancement of chemi-resistive gas sensors for the toxic and flammable gas monitoring. Furthermore, this presentation will provide an outline of the mechanism and the factors affecting higher and selective gas response.
