Synthesis and Characterizations of Nanoparticle Sulfur Using Eggshell Membrane as Template
Nanoparticles of sulfur with an average diameter of 5-35 nm were successfully prepared using eggshell membrane (ESM) as template in the the presence of surfactant Tween-80. The products were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The sizes of the nanoparticles sulfur were estimated by Debye-Scherrer formula according to XRD spectrum. Based on the detailed investigation, a possible synthesis mechanism is discussed here.
