Preparation of zinc oxide and zinc sulfide powders by controlled precipitation from aqueous solution
ZnO and ZnS powders were prepared from aqueous solutions of zinc salts in the presence of ethylenediamine or triethanolamine. The morphology of the powders was analysed by scanning electron microscopy and infrared spectroscopy. The effect of the experimental conditions upon the size and shape of the particles is described with a special emphasis on the role of the organic ligand.
