Facile synthesis of monodisperse porous Co3O4 microspheres with superior ethanol sensing properties

Abstract

A solvothermal method was developed to prepare on a large scale monodisperse porous β-Co(OH)2 microspheres consisting of nanoplatelets. Co3O4 microspheres with porous platelets were obtained via subsequent thermal decomposition. These Co3O4 microspheres show much higher ethanol sensitivity and selectivity at a relatively low temperature (135 °C) compared with those of commercial Co3O4 nanoparticles.
