Graphene-Tin Oxide (G-SnO2) nanocomposites in different morphology were synthesized using tin (II) chloride (SnCl2) and graphene Oxide (GO) via hydrothermal process in the presence of hydrazine and ammonia by adding surfactant for 12 hours in a teflon autoclave at 100ºC reaction temperature. Poly(vinyl prolidon) (PVP) and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) were used as nonionic surfactants while hexadecyl trimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB) and sodium dodecyl sulfonate (SDS) were utilized as cationic and anionic surfactants, respectively. The synthesized nanocomposites were characterized by XRD, FESEM, C-TEM and FT-IR. The gas sensing properties of the obtained samples to the vapors of various Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), such as Ethanol, Methanol, Chloroform, Toluene and Acetone were also investigated at room temperature. The prepared G-SnO2 nanocomposites exhibited high detection performances for ethanol, chloroform and methanol. The nanocomposites could be used as sensor material for VOC gases. © 2018 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
