The fabrication methods and the basic properties of the metal-oxide nanostructures referred as nanowires are presented and reviewed in this paper, with particular emphasis to the electrical and optical properties and their useful implementation for chemical and biochemical sensing. The field of chemical sensors has benefited by the wealth of highly crystalline nanostructures produced by physical and chemical methods. Large variation in bulk electrical conductivity, structural stability upon high temperature operation, high ...
