Preparation of Nanocomposite Particles from Typha angustifolia and Egg Shells
Nanocomposite Paticles have been successfully synthesized from Typha Angustifolia and Egg Shells via 3 steps synthesis; hydrothermal, pyrolysis and/or ball milling techniques, respectively. Typha Angustifolia was subjected to produce fine carbon particles by two stage processes of hydrothermal (at 200 °C for 4 h) and carbonization technique (under Argon atmosphere at 700 °C for 2 h) while the egg shells were convert to white powder (calcium oxide) by calcining under air atmosphere at 900 °C for 4 h. The samples have been characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) to investigate the morphology and surface function, respectively. The experimental results revealed that the planetary mill have effect on the composites between carbon and calcium. Calcium was deposited on the surface of carbon material. Moreover, when the calcium was increased leading to higher performance of milling (i.e. the smaller composite product was observed).
