Stanene which consists of atomically thin tin (Sn) atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice has shown great promise in gas sensing applications in its pristine, doped and functionalized forms. This new material with its exotic properties is highly efficient in the detection of the environmentally harmful gases like SO2, NO2, CO2 and NH3.
In this focused and up-to-date review we aim to systematically present and discusses how structural deformations, defects and doping affect the gas sensing performance. The literature survey of first principles studies is critically examined regards the success/failures of its gas sensing properties as compared to graphene. Despite the impressive progress in this field many challenges in large scale synthesis, device fabrication and commercialization need to be addressed. The current review can help understand the current status and drawbacks of stanene and identify future directions in this field.
