Tungsten oxide nanoneedles functionalized with gold or platinum nanoparticles (NPs) are synthesized using a single-step aerosol-assisted chemical vapor deposition method. They are integrated into gas-sensor platforms, which are used to discriminate analytes present in proton-exchange fuel cells. This co-deposition method is demonstrated to be effective both for incorporating metal NPs into nanostructured materials, resulting in an attractive way of tuning functionality in metal oxides, and for directly integrating these materials with devices.
