Soft template-assisted synthesis of polyvinylpyrrolidone−functionalized nano-scale ZnO particles

ZnO was successfully prepared by the conventional synthetic route. Polyvinylpyrrolidone was used as soft-template to synthesize ZnO with controllable size and shape. It was found that ZnO was synthesized with average crystal size of 49 nm, as reported by an X-ray diffraction experiment. Scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy confirmed the hexagonal shape of the as-synthesized ZnO. The thus prepared ZnO colloidal particles exhibited numerous opportunities for numerous applications.
