Pure, Size Tunable ZnO Nanocrystals Assembled into Large Area PMMA Layer as Efficient Catalyst
Here, we demonstrate for the first time a strategy to self-assemble ZnO nanoparticles (NP) on a large area by a facile one-step process. First, rough and random ZnO nanocrystals (NC), were produced by free-stabilizing aqueous synthesis. Therefore, a post thermal treatment at various temperatures ranging from 80 to 800 °C was necessary to obtain size-tunable and photoluminescent crystalline NP. The fabricated NP had both efficient UV photoluminescence and photocatalytic activity bydoi:10.3390/catal9020162 fatcat:xdqpbovadzcohmid4abomjpsfi
