The Effect of Nano Filler Al2O3 on (PEO+KClO4) Based Polymer Electrolyte Gas Sensors

T. Sreekanth and V. Madhusudhana Reddy
Abstract—Growth of solid polymer electrolytes is driven by their tremendous technological applications. Therefore, solid-state polymer electrolyte have been prepared by solution – casting method by using poly (ethylene oxide) (PEO), KClO4 salt and Nano filler Al2O3. The complexation of poly (ethylene oxide) (PEO), KClO4and Al2O3 have been studied by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), IR and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Solid state electrochemical carbon monoxide gas sensors have been fabricated by using polymer electrolytes (PEO+ KClO4) and (PEO+ KClO4+Nano filler Al2O3) and studied their sensitivities at different temperatures, and at different carbon monoxide gas concentrations. From these studies it is concluded that nano filler added polymer electrolytes sensor have more sensitivity when compared to the polymer electrolytes without nano filler.

Index Terms—Polymer, poly (ethylene oxide), x-ray diffraction, gas sensor.
