In this book, the special efforts are spent to synthesis of Pristine and Palladium doped Bismuth Ferrite using various methods and finally one method is chosen to continue this research that is Sol-Gel method. Then, the synthesized samples are characterized by various characterization techniques. Finally, these samples are tested for gas sensors and photoactive applications.
Chapter I presents the fundamental of various gas sensors and synthesis, structure properties and applications of Bismuth Ferrite. Chapter II deals with experimental techniques like X-ray Diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy, Impedance spectroscopy, etc. Chapter III covers synthesis of pristine Bismuth ferrite using Sol-Gel method, synthesis of palladium doped Bismuth ferrite. Further, all results arediscussed related to gas sensing performance and photo-activity with various parameters. Chapter IV is devoted to summarize this research and future work.
I hope that the book in its present form may be more suitable. I thank the publishers, Horizon Books Publication Delhi, whole heartedly for cooperation and goodwill.
