Graphitic Carbon-Coated ZrC- and Co-Nanoparticles Synthesized by Pulsed Plasma in Liquid
Graphitic carbon coated ZrC- and Co-nanoparticles were prepared by pulsed plasma in liquid (PPL); their structures were then investigated by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and Raman spectroscopy. In the process, metal electrodes were used as the metal source and liquid ethanol as the carbon source. The nanoparticles, with a small diameter size of 10 nm, have clear core/shell structures, indicating their potential for improving anti-oxidation properties and other applications.
