Syntheses and characterization of Sr(OH)2 and SrCO3 nanostructures by ultrasonic method.


PMID 19501537

Abstract

The Sr(OH)(2) and SrCO(3) nanostructures were synthesized by reaction of strontium(II) acetate and sodium hydroxide or tetramethylammonium hydroxide (TMAH) via ultrasonic method. Reaction conditions, such as the concentration of the Sr(2+) ion, aging time, power of the ultrasonic device and alkali salts show important roles in the size, morphology and growth process of the final products. The pure crystalline SrCO(3) were obtained by heating of product at 400 degrees C. The Sr(OH)(2) and SrCO(3) nanostructures were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), thermal gravimetric (TG), differential thermal analyses (DTA) and the infrared spectroscopy (IR).
