Abstract A vanadium and tungsten mixed oxide was deposited onto glassy carbon substrates and used as pH sensor in extended gate field effect transistor (EGFET) devices. WO3 at a molar ratio of about 5% was mixed with V2O5 by means of the sol-gel method. the main focus of this investigation was to determine the operation conditions for the best response of the device and to propose the mechanism involved in the sensor response. the use of either original or reused films were employed and the importance of the total volume of the starting solution was also examined. the time response of the V2O5/WO3-pH-EGFET sensor is due to a deprotonation mechanism of vanadium and tungsten oxide, similarly to a discharging capacitor. the loss of protons by the oxide film depends on the time it remains immersed in the buffer solution and this process is accelerated upon raising the pH value. the increase of the films fabrication volume reduces the importance of the changes of the surface charges compared to the charges of the bulk, leading to less sensitive and less stable sensor response. Therefore, the smaller the amount of material used, the better the sensing properties of the device. (C) 2012 the Electrochemical Society. All rights reserved.
