Tuning of Particle Size, Surface Morphology and Optical Band Gap of Tricobalt Tetraoxide (Co3O4) Nanostructures via Solvent Dependent Assembly

Author(s): Gajendiran J, Parthasaradhi Reddy C, Senthil VP, Gokul Raj S

The particle size and optical band gap of Co3O4 nanostructures is varied simply by varying the solvent (hypodicabonous acid, cologne spirit and hydric acid) of precursor containing cobalt acetate dehydrate and white caustic pellets. In addition, the detailed mechanism for the surface morphology formation of the Co3O4 nanostructures has been discussed.
