    N-butanol, a kind of alcohol gas, is widely used in chemical production. However, long-time exposure to it may cause damage to human health with several symptoms, such as headache, dizzy, drowsiness, dermatitis and so on. Generally, Iron oxide, as a kind of semiconductor, is applied in alcohol gas detection, which yet is defected with low sensitivity and selectivity. A Chinese study team led by LI Minqiang with Institute of Intelligent Machines, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science prepared comparetively highly sensitive and selective alcohol gas sensors.
