The perovskite-type compounds $La_{1-x}Ca_xCoO_3$ were synthesized, their thermochemical properties and the gaseous sensitivity were investigated in ethanol vapor. The maximum response for detecting gas corresponded with the exothermic peak of DTA experiment. In any case the substituent was increased, the responsive ratio for detecting gas was grown upon. However, the needed time for response was later, and the operating temperature was elevated. The mechanism of this electrical conductivity was explained by the oxygen ionic diffusion through oxygen vacancy produced by the substituent.
