3.2 Synthesis of ZnO Nanostructures

ZnO nanoparticles were prepared by using the following reagents : Starch solution Zinc nitrate hexahydrate {Zn〖(NO_3)〗_2 .6 H_2 O} Sodium hydroxide { NaOH) Freshly prepared ammonia solution.
In order to prepare 0.01M of ZnO nanoparticles, the following steps were followed:
The 0.01 M of Sodium hydroxide { NaOH} solutions in starch was prepared by adding 0.04 gm of NaOH powder dissolved in 100 ml of 3% starch solution. The solutions were stirred for 1 hour at the temperature of 〖50〗^0C at about 250 RPM. Again, 0.01M of Zinc nitrate hexahydrate {Zn〖(NO_3)〗_2 .6

The depositions were carried out at room temperature. The matrix solutions were prepared separately by an aqueous solution (3% by volume) of Starch with constant stirring at a constant temperature 800 C maintained for 2 hours. Cadmium acetate solution was prepared at 0.1M concentration for Starch solutions in presence of ammonia solution (pH maintained at 9.5). These solutions were added to Sodium Sulfide (Na2S) solution under constant stirring for another 1 hours. The prepared samples were yellow in color indicating the formation of CdS nanostructures. Cadmium acetate was dissociated into Cd+2 ions. After adding ammonia solution, it formed the cadmium complex. This complex solution was then reacted with the sulfur ion from Na2S and results …show more content…
The Zinc nitrate hexa hydrate [Zn(NO3)2.6H2O] and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) was adopted as synthesis precursors. The production unit for this chemical synthesis method was consisted of three neck glass flask and of a magnetic stirrer with temperature control. The reaction was carried out in a nitrogen environment to prevent oxidation. In the plass chamber, NaOH was dissolved in Starch solution (3% concentration of Starch in double distilled water solution) to a concentration of 0.1M and the resulting solutions were stirried at 700 C for 1 hour. Then, a solution of 0.5 M Zn(NO3)2.6H2O was added dropwise under constant stirring. For collection of core ZnO, half portion of the material was filtered and washed several times with deionized water and ethanol. The washed samples were dried at 650 C in the oven for 1 hour. The shell CdS nanoparticles were prepared by simultaneous addition of Cadmium Acetate solutions and Sodium Sulfide (Na2S) solutions. The synthesis was carried out at room temperature. The pH of the solution was kept at 9 by adding ammonia solution. The molarity of the solution was maintained at 0.1 M. ZnO/CdS core/shell nanostructures were prepared by altering core to shell ratio as 1:1 (B), 1:2 (C) and 1:3 (D) for thicker shell coating of CdS. The three samples of the core/shell were considered for structural and optical properties

    For the first synthesis reaction, camphene was converted to isobornyl acetate. In the fume hood, a sample of 1.36 g of camphene was added to a 25-mL round-bottomed flask along with a stir bar. To dissolve the camphene, 3.0 mL of glacial acetic acid was added into the flask. The flask was fastened onto a ring stand and immersed in a water bath that was on top of a stir plate. A thermometer wire was placed in the water bath to monitor the temperature throughout the experiment.…

    This was done by measuring out 2.022g±0.001g of potassium crystals onto a weighing balance and adding 200 cm3 of distilled water using a 250 cm3 graduated cylinder. Then the solution was mixed and dissolved in the 500 cm3 beaker. Three paper towels were then twisted and soaked in the potassium nitrate solution. It was then placed as the salt bridge across the two beakers which constituted the voltaic cell. Controlled Material of cathode and anode Copper is to be used as cathode and zinc is to be used as…

    In-vitro drug release study The prepared econazole nitrate nanoparticles obtained from the nano-spray dryer were suspended in isotonic buffer pH 7.4 and were then tested for drug release by dialysis method in isotonic buffer with pH of 7.4. Nanoparticles (equivalent to 2.5 mg of drug) were instilled in dialysis bag containing 1 ml isotonic buffer with pH value of 7.4 and was secured by two clamps at each end. The dialysis bag was completely soaked in a vessel containing 100 ml of release medium with shaking rate of 200 stroke per min and maintaining at 34oC (incubator shaker IKA KS 4000, Germany). The vessel was closed to avoid evaporation of the release medium. Samples were taken at certain time intervals.…

    Ethyl vinyl ether was used to protect –OH on glycidol based on a literature reported protocal.59 In a typical procedure, 0.675 mol glycidol and 200 mL ethyl vinyl ether were loaded in a round-bottom flask, to which 1.25 g TsOH was then added. The reaction was allowed to proceed at room temperature (RT) for 3h. The resulting mixture was then purified by washing with 100 ml saturated aqueous solution of NaHCO3 for 3 times. The organic layer obtained was dried by MgSO4. After filtration of MgSO4, the excess ethyl vinyl ether was removed by rotary evaporation.…
