The paper focuses on the ab initio theoretical study of the silicon nanostructures sensitivity to adsorption of CH4 molecules. The electronic properties of porous silicon, silicon nanoclusters in a vacuum, silicon nanowires, and nanoscale silicon film are examined. The analysis of results shows that silicon nanofilm is most sensitive to CH4 adsorption as compared with nanoclusters, nanowires, and porous silicon.
