Titanium dioxide (TiO2) Nanoparticles XRD Analyses: An Insight
This work reports aspect related to nano-sized particles of tetragonal anatase phase Titania. This approach is simple, faster, Eco-friendly, cost effective and suitable for large scale production. X-Ray Diffraction studies analyze particles size. It is found to be 74 nm and specific surface area is 19.16m2g-1. Morphology index (MI) derived from FWHM of XRD data explains the interrelationship of particle size and specific surface area. It is observed that MI has direct relationship with particle size and an inverse relationship with specific surface area. This work throws some light on and helps in the production line of Titania nano-particles.
Innovation of Superparamagnetism in Lead Nanoparticles
This work reports, some of the features related to the room temperature superparamagnetic behaviours of lead nanoparticles. Such behaviours have not been discussed elaborately, in any literatures, so far. It is obvious from our studies that the superparamagnetic behaviours of Pb nanoparticles are surprising behaviours, since bulk Pb has diamagnetic behaviours. Hysteresis curve from Vibrating Sample Magnetometer study of Pb nanopowder (metal) serves some new observations. The successful calculations of values like magnetic size, saturation magnetization, coercive field, and remanent magnetism confirm its superparamagnetic nature and explore its potential application in various industries. This work throws some light on and helps further research.
Konjac Bio-Molecules Assisted, Rod-Spherical shaped Lead Nano Powder Synthesized by Electrolytic Process and Its Characterization Studies
Synthesis and structural characterization of Pb nanoparticles by electrolysis using a bioactive compound - konjac aqueous extract is the main aim of this study. This method is a unique, novel, low cost and double-step procedure with good reproducibility and has not been used for nanoparticles preparation so far. Konjac extract has been added to prevent the oxidation of Pb nanoparticles. Also the synthesized nanoparticles have been dried in open air to observe their stability. Various types of characterization tools like XRD, SEM, Particle Size Analyzer, TEM-EDS, DSC, AAS and FT-IR have been utilized to study characters of the end product. Anti-bacterial Studies has also been done. After completion of synthesis process that we have made an attempt to change the shape of the synthesized nanoparticles by the influence of sunbeams and to find the effects of the sunlight on nanomaterials.
Chemical Capping Synthesis of Nickel Oxide Nanoparticles and their Characterizations Studies
This work reports aspect related to chemical capping synthesis of nano-sized particles of nickel oxide. It is a simple, novel and cost effective method. The average particle size, specific surface area, crystallinity index are estimated from XRD analysis. The structural, functional groups and optical characters are analyzed with using of SEM, FTIR and UV- visible techniques. XRD studies confirm the presence of high degree of crystallinity nature of nickel oxide nanoparticles. Their particle size is found to be 12 nm and specific surface area (SSA) is 74m2 g-1. The optical band gap energy value 3.83ev has also been determined from UV-vis spectrum.
Chemical Precipitation Synthesis of Ferric Chloride Doped Zinc Sulphide Nanoparticles and Their Characterization Studies
Nanoparticles of Ferric Chloride doped ZnS has been synthesized by simple chemical precipitation method and characterized by XRD, SEM, UV-Vis analysis, Differential Thermal Analysis, Thermo Gravimetric Analysis and Differential Scanning Calorimetry. XRD patterns of the samples reveal particle size, specific surface area and the formation of cubic structure. The SEM images show that the cauliflower likes structure. Optical band gap values have been obtained from UV-Vis absorption spectra. It has also been found that energy band gap (Eg) increases with the increase in molar concentration of reactant solution. Thermal analysis measurement of the prepared sample shows that the thermal stability of pure ZnS is decreased due to increase in Ferric Chloride concentration. Undoped ZnS is more thermal stable when compared to FeCl3 doped ZnS.
