The purpose of this work was to satisfy both materials and technological sciences, on the one hand implementing innovative hybrid materials referred to as ECS (Eni Carbon Silicate) in gas sensors manufacturing, and on the other hand verifying their possible operation at room temperature as a technological progress. The ECS-14 and ECS-13 phases were employed as functional materials for films deposited by drop coating onto alumina substrates. Room-temperature gas tests were performed to study their potential sensing properties. In humidity conditions, the ECS-14 based sensor showed outstanding performance and a complete calibration vs. moisture concentration was obtained.
