Synthesis and porous h-BN 3D architectures for effective humidity and gas sensors

Author affiliations

Abstract

3D (three dimensional) architectures synthesised using an easily scalable solid state method which results in an interconnected network of porous h-BN sheets with boron trioxide are reported in this study. The boron trioxide acts as a nucleating agent for the formation of laterally large nanosheets of h-BN with a low density and increases the specific surface area. The stable form shows improved mechanical properties (experimentally and using MD simulation) and serves as a suitable material for humidity and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) sensor applications. The sensor shows stability for up to several months without losing its sensitivity.
