Electron diffraction pattern of PbS nanoparticles in zeolite X
Optical and structural properties of PbS nanoparticles produced in Zeolite Na-X
The study of semiconductor nanoparticles embedded in a matrix is currently a very active research area. These small particles have physicochemical properties quite different from those in the bulk material. A great variety of semiconductors nanoparticles have been synthesized in different matrix such as polymers, glasses and zeolites with the main purpose to modify their properties by controlling the particle size. Alterations to these properties mean they can be tailored to specific applications in the fields of non-linear optics, photovoltaic conversion, catalysis, optoelectronics, etc.
In this work, published in AZojomo*, by M. Flores-Acosta, R. Pérez-Salas, M. Sotelo-Lerma, F. F. Castillón-Barraza and R. Ramírez-Bon from Unidad Querétaro, Universidad de Sonora and Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, PbS nanoparticles were synthesized in zeolite Na-X by means of ionic exchange processes in alkaline aqueous solutions. They reported the optical and structural properties of the system PbS-Na-X zeolite.
