  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Zinc Oxide

    864 Words  | 4 Pages

    Zinc oxide is a semiconductor material II-VI studied since the middle of 20the century. Most of the physical properties of massive ZnO are therefore well known for several decades. The interest of the researchers then declined, partly because of a major technological lock for the use of ZnO in optoelectronics, namely the impossibility of doping the p-type ZnO. The ability to grow thin layers and low dimensional hetero structures (quantum wells, nano-columns, etc.) of good crystalline quality recently

  • Zinc Oxide Semiconductors Nanowires ( The ) For Gas Detection

    1277 Words  | 6 Pages

    Tin Oxide Semiconductors Nanowires(NW) for Gas Detection. In the recent years nanoscale sensors have become more and more popular. When making a nanostructure-based sensor the most important aspects that have to be taken into account are: sensitivity, selectivity and stability. The way gas sensors function is determined by the convection of electrical conductivity due to surface reactions such as oxidation or reduction caused by the exposure to different types of gases. Recently a great quantity

  • Environmental Problems Associated With Organic Dyes

    2399 Words  | 10 Pages

    Photocatalysis is a simple and promising technique for solving various current environmental issues. Semiconductor absorbents offer a great potential for eliminating the organic pollutants present. Semiconductor photocatalysts for example, zinc oxide and titanium oxide have been applied to degradation of contaminants in waste water and air. On common example,For photocatalysis process, ZnO has also been considered as a suitable alternative for TiO2 due to The band-gap energy of ZnO is similar to TiO2

  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Synthesis

    1031 Words  | 5 Pages

    Disadvantages of Chemical Synthesis of Nanoparticles The chemical synthesis methods of ZnO nanoparticles like chemical precipitation, hydrothermal method, and pyrolysis, chemical vapour deposition, and so forth result in the presence of some toxic chemicals adsorbed on the surface. These substances may have adverse effects in medical applications. There are some reactions in these chemical procedures which require high temperature and high pressure for their initiation while there are some reactions

  • The Menace Of Industrial Pollution

    862 Words  | 4 Pages

    CHEAPTER-1 INTRODUCTION GENERAL- Industrial pollution has become a menace in past many years on the environment, economy, and social aspects. Our construction industries are the major source of pollution accountable for around 4% of particulate emission. The enormous demand of construction industries has highlighted the requirement for sustainable development and intelligent utilization of resources, pointing towards two commonly used materials i.e. cement and nanomaterial there by substantially

  • Zinc Ores During The World After Iron, Aluminum, And Copper

    980 Words  | 4 Pages

    Introduction Zinc is currently the fourth most widely consumed metal in the world after iron, aluminum, and copper. In nature, zinc ores could be divided into sulphide minerals and oxide minerals. Zinc is extracted mostly from zinc sulfide ores. With depletion of global resources of zinc sulfides as well as the restriction on sulfur emissions during their processing, there is an increasing focus on the processing of the huge reserves of zinc oxide ores (Li et al., 2010). Thomas and Fray (1981) studied

    unlined pit which allows for chemicals to seep into the sediments at a much faster and easier rate. In addition, Atlas Batteries has a direct effluent discharge into Cruddy Creek that carries contaminants of concern such as cadmium, nickel, lead, and zinc. Metal Plater has a long history with Cruddy Creek since its operations began in 1930. Their focus is on different types of electroplating. Due to the complex process of electroplating the waste products that are produced may be “acidic or alkaline
