Microcube-like Hierarchical Heterostructure of α-Fe2O3@α-MoO3 for Trimethylamine Sensing

Abstract

Rational design and directional synthesis of well-defined porous metal oxide heterostructure remain a challenge for the fabrication of new gas sensors with enhanced sensing properties. Herein, a novel hierarchical heterostructure of -Fe2O3@-MoO3 microcubes was prepared applying self-sacrifice template strategy, in which porous metal-organic framework (MOF) was used as precursors with partially insertion of OH− and MoO42− and extraction of [Fe(CN)6]34− followed by heating treatment. Benefiting from the porous microcubic structural characteristic, the -Fe2O3@-MoO3 heterostructures exhibited excellent selectivity and high sensitivity for triethylamine gas with the highest response value (Ra/Rg) of 18.64 under the operating temperature of 240 °C. The experimental results also revealed that the material showed fast response and recovery time (12 s/106 s) and excellent repeatability for at least 20 days. This feasible synthetic strategy may provide a versatile and controlled way to prepare other polymetal oxide-based heterostructures with improved sensing performance.
