Ni-CNT as Isopropanol Sensor: Ab-Initio Analysis

Abstract: The sensing ability of Ni-doped SWCNT has been evaluated in presence of isopropanol (IPA) molecule, using density functional theory. The fundamental model for this work has been built on (7, 0) zigzag CNT (Ni-doped) with adsorbed IPA molecule on sidewall of CNT. Charge transfer from nanotube surface to molecule and high adsorption energy made the sensor more conductive after adsorption. Semiconducting to metallic transfer and abrupt enhancement in current confirms the presence of isopropanol molecule near the surface.
