Abstract: An ab initio study of the adsorption processes on NOx compounds on (1 1 0) SnO2 surface is presented with the aim of providing theoretical hints for the development of improved NOx gas sensors. From first principles calculations (DFT¿GGA approximation), the most relevant NO and NO2 adsorption processes are analyzed by means of the estimation of their adsorption energies. The resulting values and the developed model are also corroborated with experimental desorption temperatures for NO and NO2, allowing us to explain the temperature-programmed desorption experiments. The interference of the SO2 poisoning agent on the studied processes is discussed and the adsorption site blocking consequences on sensing response are analyzed.
