New sensors for detecting gases at low concentration were successfully developed. Two metal oxide materials, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, usually employed both in gas sensing as well as in photocatalytic application, were synthesized both through a traditional sol-gel method and an electrospinning technique. The corresponding thick films were considered with respect to the target gases (acetone for ZnO and carbon monoxide for TiO2) for comparing their functional properties.
