Abstract While ethanol is the most common cosolvent used for the synthesis of various SnO2 nano/microstructures by hydro/solvothermal process, it is not clear how the use of some other alcoholic cosolvents (for example, methanol or isopropanol) affect morphology and properties of SnO2, especially if synthesis is done under similar conditions as in the case of ethanol co-solvent. In the present study, we investigated how the use of various alcoholic co-solvents (methanol, ethanol, 2- propanol, ethylene glycol and glycerol) affects crystal structure, morphology and specific surface area of the hydrothermally synthesized SnO2. Additionally, gas sensitivity towards 100 ppm ethanol of the synthesized materials was tested.
