Detailed Characterization of Hydrothermally Synthesized SnO2 Nanoparticles
Abstract:3–4 nm of SnO2 nanoparticles having uniform spherical shape were successfully synthesized using a hydrothermal method. The hydrothermal method has many advantages over other methods of preparing nanoparticles (such as sol–gel, solid state, and chemical precipitation), because there is no need for calcination and milling steps. The particles were characterized by X-ray diffraction, pore size diamater analysis, transmission electron microscope, scanning electron microscope analysis, Raman spectroscopy, and thermogravimetric analysis/differential thermogravimetric analysis. The results confirm that SnO2 nano powders are homogeneous, nano scale, and of high crystalline quality.
