Gas sensor was needed to detect and the presence of gas, either for toxic gas or non toxic gas. The one of the important part in gas sensor instrument are the metal oxide. There are some ways to make metal oxide for sensing material of gas sensor; the one is sol-gel process. The purpose of this experiment is to make zinc oxide by sol-gel process. Zinc acetate dehydrate was dissolved in diethylene glycol and heated up to 130 0C until a clear solution was obtained. After adding de-ionized water under vigorous stirring the resulting mixture was heated at 180 0C for 2 hours. After drying at 400 0C for 2 hours and annealing at 600 0C for 1 hour, a yellow fine powder was obtained, which was identified by using XRD and SEM. From this observation, Zinc Oxide has been formed in nano size range, it is around 100 nanometer as the major phase with homology peak value of XRD between ZnO standard and product is 98.
