A low-temperature chemical route was used for the synthesis of hexagonal ZnO nanorods having an aspect ratio of similar to 10. The sensing properties of the thick films made from these nanorods were investigated. It was observed that the surface irregularities, calcination temperature and operating temperature altered the structure and thus the gas sensing properties. An effort was made to create surface misfits by doping indium into the zinc oxide and study the changes in the sensor performance. Effect of palladium loading on the selectivity was also investigated. It was observed that indium doping favors the ethanol sensing and palladium loading enhances the sensor response toward LPG. The quick response, high sensor response and selectivity are the main features of this work.
