Synthesis and characterization of zinc oxide nanoparticles

Sunyani, M (2014) Synthesis and characterization of zinc oxide nanoparticles. MSc thesis.



In the present work, pure zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO) were successfully synthesized by a precipitation method using zinc acetate dehydrate and sodium hydroxide as the precursor materials. The as-prepared precursor was calcined at 500°C and 800°C temperatures for 2h. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The XRD spectra indicate that the ZnO crystal has a hexagonal wurtzite structure. Different compositions of zinc/iron oxides nanocomposites will be synthesized and characterized using XRD, IR, SEM, UV-Vis, and PL studies. The prepared nanocomposites will also be applied for removal of toxic metal ions from aqueous solutions.
