Hydrothermal Synthesis and Photocatalytic Properties of ZnO Nanorods
ZnO2 nanorods were synthesized via hydrothermal treatment of 2ZnCO3•3Zn(OH)2 powder in 30 mass% H2O2 aqueous solution at 170 °C for 12 h, and characterized by means of X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and UV–vis diffuse reflectance spectra. Besides, the photocatalytic activity of the as-synthesized ZnO2 nanorods was tested for the degradation of methyl orange in distilled water under UV light irradiation.
