Abstract

In the present work we report a rapid microwave irradiation-assisted chemical synthesis technique for the growth of nanoparticles, nanorods, and nanotubes of a variety of metal oxides in the presence of an appropriate surfactant (cationic, anionic, non ionic and polymeric), without the use of any templates. The method is simple, inexpensive, and helps one to prepare nanostructures in quick time, measured in seconds and minutes. This method has been applied successfully to synthesize nanostructures of a variety of binary and ternary metal oxides such as ZnO, CdO, Fe2O3, CuO, Ga2O3, Gd2O3, ZnFe2O4, etc. There is an observed variation in the morphology of the nanostructures with changes in different process parameters, such as microwave power, irradiation time, identity of solvent, type of surfactant, and its concentration.
