Preparation of Nanometer ZnO Compound Particles and Ultraviolet Absorption Properties


Article Preview

ZnO/TiO2 and ZnO/SnO2 composite nanoparticles were prepared by hydrothermal combined-assisted ethanol method , The products were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDS), and the uv-vis absorption performance of which was also characterized by uv-vis diffuse reflective spectrum (UV-vis). The results of the research showed that, in ultraviolet-visible absorption spectra diffuse, the maximum absorption peaks of ZnO/TiO2 and ZnO/SnO2 nanocomposite particles were blue-shift comparing to the pure nanometer ZnO, and there were also weak absorption in the visible region.
