Abstract. A catalytic combustion-type carbon monoxide gas sensor exhibiting good sensing performance even at moderate temperatures was previously developed by employing a Pt loaded CeO2–ZrO2–SnO2 solid solution as the CO oxidizing catalyst. The addition of aluminum nitride as an intermediate heat transfer layer between the Pt coil and the CO oxidizing catalyst drastically accelerated the response of this device to CO at temperatures as low as 70 °C.
