In the present work pure and tin (Sn) Doped Cobalt Oxide (Co3O4) nanoparticles were synthesized by Sol Gel method. The effect of Sn doping on structural properties of nanoparticles were investigated using x-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy(SEM) and Electron dispersive X-ray analysis(EDAX).the XRD spectrum revealed the crystalline and crystal structure of the sample. It also shows that the diffraction peaks are broadened which reveals the narrow size distribution of cobalt

The properties of Sn doped Cobalt oxide nanoparticles prepared through simple cost effective, sol gel method can be used in effective gas sensing technique.
