Synthesis of Mono-Sized Silica Nanoparticles by Combustion Technique

Abstract:

Article Preview

A simple combustion technique is presented for the preparation of mono-sized silica nanoparticles by employing tetraethyl orthosilicates as precursor. The as-grown white powders were characterized by means of scanning electron microscopy. The results showed the size of silica nanoparticles were relative to the unique synthesis conditions. According to the observation and analysis of the scanning electron microscopy images, the possible growth mechanism of silica nanoparticles in this process is proposed.
