The ${\gamma}$-Fe$_2$O$_3$ compounds were oxidized in the furance after gas detecting sensor made molding as the Fe$_3$O$_4$ the synthesized Fe$_3$O$_4$, by ferrous sulfate and sodium hydroxide. Their sensities on carbon monoxide, ethyl alcohol and L. P. G. were measured at various temperatures, respectively. And then their electrical resistivities, thermal properties (D.T.A. & T.G.A.), were examined about their having an effet on the gas-sensing in company with the effect of pure ${\gamma}$-Fe$_2$O$_3$ and the detecting sensor ${\gamma}$-Fe$_2$O$_3$, which reacts with $K_2$CO$_3$ in the hydrothermal coundition, and the electrical conductive mechanism was reflected simultaneously. It was observed that the electrical conductivities and response ratios showed highest value at the endothermic temperature part, 300~35$0^{\circ}C$ of D.T.A.―curve. Consequently, the response ratios and response times of the hydrothermal detecting sensor were higher than that of pure detecting sensor, the specific surface areas were the highest at the endothermic range of D.T.A.-curve. These response ratios of detecting sensor for $K_2$CO$_3$, process at hydrothermal condition on carbon monoxide appeared higher than that on ethyl alcohol and in case of L.P.G. last.
