To investigate how central metal tunes the synergetic interactions between substituted metallo-phthalocyanine and single-walled carbon nanotubes in enhancing the gas sensing properties, a comparative study has been performed by varying the central metal ion in fluorinated metal phthalocyanines and single-walled carbon nanotube hybrid. Hybrids of metal(ii)-1,2,3,4,8,9,10,11,15,16,17,18-24,25-hexa-decafluoro-29H,31H-phthalocyanine/single-walled carbon nanotube (F16MPc/SWCNTs-COOH, where M = Co, Zn) have been synthesized through - stacking interactions using the solution route. Spectroscopic (FT-IR, UV-vis, XPS and Raman), electron microscopic (TEM and FE-SEM) and TGA investigations have confirmed the successful functionalization and interaction of SWCNTs-COOH with F16MPc. Parts per billion (ppb) level Cl-2-selective chemiresistive gas sensors have been fabricated on glass substrates with precoated gold electrodes by using these hybrids. The responses of various F16MPc/SWCNTs-COOH sensors have demonstrated the central metal ion-dependence in the sensitivity of Cl-2.
