Preparation of ZnO Nanopowder by Chemical Liquid-Phase Method with Polyethylene Glycol Additives
One-dimensional ZnO nanopowder was prepared by chemistry liquid-phase method with polyethylene glycol (PEG) as additive in [Zn(OH)4]2- premonitory solution. TEM results showed that the nanopowder with the diameter of 30~50nm has the structure such as the good crystal state and well-defined crystallographic surfaces. The UV–Vis absorption revealed that the ZnO nanopowder have strong absorption in the UV region. The function of polyethylene glycol and the effects of solvent conditions were discussed.
