Abstract: In this work, we’ve made SnO2 flower formed with the aid of using easy test steps, and without cost, which is the hydrothermal approach and without a template. We have used a variety of techniques to characterize SnO2 flower-shaped by (SEM, TEM, XRD, BET and XPS) instruments. Confirmatory tests carried out have proven that the surface of the tetragonal structure of SnO2 has a rough surface which makes it excellent for its gas-sensing properties. The gas detection test of SnO2 flower-shaped proved that it possesses the selectivity of formaldehyde gas (about 30), the optimum operating temperature of the sensor is 220°C, and also the sensor has a high response time and recovery time is (5 s and 22 s) to 100 ppm, respectively. Particularly, the sensor has an obvious response value (2) when exposed to 5 ppm formaldehyde. As well, the mechanism of gas-sensing was also discussed.
