Synthesis and Characterization of ZnO Nanoparticles and 50% ZnO-Bentonite Nanocomposite

Author(s): Swati Patil and S. J. Raut

ZnO nanoparticles and 50% ZnO-Bentonite nanocomposite have been prepared by a precipitation method using zinc nitrate, bentonite clay and NaOH as precursors. X-ray diffractometry (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX) were used to characterize the structural and the chemical features of the nanoparticles. XRD pattern of prepared ZnO were compared with commercial ZnO.
