Musthofa, M. and Razali, N. A. M and Hairon, N. H. and Jalil, A. A and Trihwayono, S. Facile synthesis of nanorized zinc oxide by electrochemical method. In: Regional Annual Fundamental Science Seminar 2008 (RAFSS 2008), 27 - 29 May 2008, Ibnu Sina Institute for Fundamental Science Studies.



Nanosized highly reactive zinc oxide (EGZnO/Naph) was readily synthesized by electrolysis of a N,Ndimethylformamide (DMF) solution containing naphthalene as a mediator followed by calcination at 823 K. XRD results showed that the product is high purity of zinc oxide. The particles size of EGZnO/Naph was confirmed by TEM which was varied between 10 to 30 nm. Nitrogen physisorption analysis showed that the surface area was 45.85 m2/g, which is 10 times larger than commercial zinc oxide. The FTIR spectrum shows the standard peak of zinc oxide at 450 cm−1.
