Summary

Thin films have been deposited from Sb(dmae)3-Nil2 and Sb(dmae)3-Cd(acac)2 by aerosol-assisted CVD, with a view to investigating their potential for gas sensing. The resulting films from the former precursor were determined to be predominantly crystalline NiSb. In the latter case an amorphous material was produced with a Sb:Cd ratio of approximately 1:1 which crystallised into Cd3Sb2O6 on subsequent annealing. Preliminary gas sensing trials with a NiSb film showed it to be responsive to CO, CH4, NO2, SO2 and H2S. The Cd3Sb2O6 film was tested with CO and responded in both dry and humid ambient conditions.
