Abstract

Abstract In spite of detailed experimental and theoretical studies, a definitive model of oxygen adsorption on the surface of SnO 2 has yet to emerge. In this study, density functional theory (DFT) calculations were performed to simulate various potential scenarios for oxygen placement on the planar reduced SnO 2 (1 1 0) surface. Models for four adsorbate species that have been experimentally observed are hence proposed. Most importantly, these include the species labelled as ‘ O 2 - ’ and ‘O −’ in classical gas sensor theory, which are directly concerned with the gas sensing action of SnO 2.
