In this work, tungsten hexacarbonyl W[(CO).sub.6] was used for AACVD of tungsten oxide due to its lower decomposition temperature [16], compared to tungsten hexaphenoxide W[(OPh).sub.6] [17] (the metallorganic precursor studied in our previous works) [11, 18].
Tungsten oxide films were grown on the top of polymeric transducing platforms via AACVD of tungsten hexacarbonyl at various temperatures (300, 325, 350, and 375[degrees]C).
Chromium hexacarbonyl, Molybdenum hexacarbonyl and Tungsten hexacarbonyl (Aldrich) was used as supplied.
