Abstract
The interaction between carbon monoxide (CO) and a cobalt-salen complex (Co(salen)) was studied and applied to detect CO. The metal complex doped PEDOT:PSS film exhibited good sensitivity to CO and differentiate CO from other gases. The response of the composite to CO was reversible (RSD < 5%) change in resistance upon removal of CO gas from the test chamber. The effects of adding Co(salen) in the probe film on the response of the sensor were investigated using AFM, XPS, and FT-IR spectroscopy. The sensitivity of the sensor increased as the Co(salen) concentration enhanced as it increased from 0.0 to 1.5 wt. %, where the highest sensitivity (%ΔR/Ro) of −25.0 ± 0.05% was achieved with 1.0 wt. % Co(salen). The sensor containing probe exhibited a linear response (R2 = 0.983) in the range of 0.5 to 10.0% CO (v/v) N2, and the detection limit was 1.74% CO (v/v) in N2.
