Structural and morphological characteristics of ZnO nanosystems in the form of three-dimensional network-like systems have been investigated. Current–voltage (I–V) characteristics and charge transfer parameters of ZnO fractal-percolation nanosystems have been studied both in air and in vacuum at different temperatures and voltage sweep rates. The charge transfer characteristics show the presence of RαCiCαi chains in the nanosystems. The RC chains are formed because the Debye screening length has the same order of magnitude as the local values of ZnO nanowires radii. Gas-sensing tests based on I–V characteristics investigation have shown a possibility of distinguishing between reducing gases such as CH4 or C2H5OH.
