Synthesis and Characterization of Nanocrystalline ZnO Powders by a Novel Combustion Synthesis Method
Nanocrystalline ZnO powders have been synthesized by a novel combustion synthesis method using glycine and urea as mixed fuels and zinc nitrates as oxidant. The as-synthesized ZnO powders are characterized by DSC, XRD and SEM. Results show that the as-synthesized ZnO powders show well crystalline with hexagonal crystal structure and purity without any other impurities and the particle sizes are about 50~70nm calculated by the Scherrer formula.
