Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A simple gel to crystal conversion route has been followed for the preparation of fine ZnO at 80-100 °C under refluxing conditions. Freshly prepared zinc hydroxide gel is allowed to crystallize under refluxing and stirring conditions for 4-6 h. Formation of fine crystallites of ZnO is confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) study. Transmission electron microscope (TEM) investigations revealed that the average particle size is 100 nm for these powders.
