Rapid Synthesis of Zinc Oxide and Lead Oxide Nanorods by One-Step Solid-State Reaction Methods at Ambient Conditions
A simple and facilitate method was reported to synthesize zinc oxide and lead oxide nanorods. Two metal oxides nanorods were directly obtained from grinding solid metallic salts and sodium hydroxide in agate mortar with the assistance of a suitable surfactant in only one step, which is different from the results of hydroxides in solution. The as-prepared products were characterized by XRD, TEM and SEM. An explanation describing possible mechanism for the rod-formation is given.
