Influence of the reactant concentrations on the synthesis of ZnO nanoparticles.


We report on the synthesis of ZnO nanoparticles from Zn(CH3CO2)2 and NaOH in 2-propanol. Nucleation and growth are fast, and hence at longer times the particle size is controlled by coarsening. The coarsening kinetics are independent of the Zn(CH3CO2)2 concentration between 0.5 and 1.25 mM at a fixed [Zn(CH3CO2)2]:[NaOH] ratio of 0.625. The width of the… (More)
