## Abstract

Ammonia sensors based on catalytic oxides such as $V_2O_5, MoO_3,$ and $\alpha-, \beta-$ and $\gamma$-bismuth molybdates have been investigated. $MoO_3$ (15 mol%) supported on $TiO_2$ and $\gamma-Bi_2MoO_6$ both exhibit satisfactory sensing characteristics for $NH_3$, with a reasonably low working temperature (500-575 K) and a minimum detection limit of 10 ppm. Humidity has no measurable effect on the performance of these materials. FSR studies show the formation of $Mo^{5+}$ species on these oxides on contact with $NH_3$.
