Zinc carbonate hydroxide Zn 5 (CO 3 ) 2 (OH) 6 nanoparticles have been successfully synthesised by the hydrothermal treatment of an aqueous solution of zinc acetate dihydrate (Zn(CH 3 COO) 2 •2H 2 O) and urea (NH 2 CONH 2 ) at 120 °C. The as-synthesized nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA). XRD and SEM revealed Zn 5 (CO 3 ) 2 (OH) 6 nanoparticles produced in 20-40 nm size range with sphericaldoi:10.1016/j.proeng.2015.01.161 fatcat:2vsgj4j2ofclbitqk75ikvjw7y
