This letter reports the fabrication of a gas sensor based on a single tin oxide nanofiber made from dimethyldineodecanoate tin using electrospinning and metallorganics decomposition techniques. The fabricated sensor has been used to detect moisture and methanol gas. It showed high sensitivity to both gases and the response times of the complete testing system are in the range of 108–150 s for moisture, and 10–38 s for methanol gas, respectively.
