Synthesis of Ag-ZnO by Seed Mediated Hydrothermal Method and its Characterization.

Authors(2) :-S. S. Malvankar, A. T. Shende

Metal nano composite finds key position in many bioengineering and biomedical field. Metal nano composite also shows good catalytic efficiency, optical, thermal and electrical properties than pure nano crystal. In this regard the current paper deals with controlled synthesis and characterization of Ag-ZnO. The synthesis of Metal nano composite Ag-ZnO based on Wet Chemical Method (seed-mediated hydrothermal method) and size was found to be 14 nm and characterization were carried by XRD, TEM, PLE, absorption spectra by using UV-Vis spectrophotometer. The catalytic activity of metal nano composite have discussed as supporting explanation.
