    Posted: 27 January 2007 at 5:20am

Hello,

i'm an italian student. I am looking for some notions about the nanodispersions in the sol-gel process. What is the difference with the traditional sol-gel method?
Thank you all.. Greetings!

Hi Jian,
Sol-gel process it is classic method and one of ways of receipt of nanomaterials. What do you want to get? Film or nanoparticles?

I'm interested in nanoparticles..

sincerely i don't know nothing about nanoparticles in sol-gel..i'd like to understand in which way nanoparticles can be employed in these materials.. thank you!!

Hi giallo,

sol-gel method a material matrix (Ex SiO2) forms a large network of pores. The sizes of these pores can be tuned to be in the nanometer range. Now you have to mix the salt solution of  material (Ex any metal or oxide) of which you want to form nanoparticles into the main sol (remember much before gelling occurs) and mix them thouroughly. And allow the sol to form gel.  After this, the formed gel called precursor consists of your desired material ions are arrested into the nanopores of the matrix (SiO2). Now what is left to do is to evapourate the solvent and also reduce/oxidise the metal/oxide precursor. This can be done by heating in proper atmosphere..!!

So in short we have confined the metal/oxide crystals with in nanopores of the matrix. Hence nanosize crystals of the desired material are formed.

Hope I have been clear enough... else plz ask your questions specifically and I will try to answer..!!

hi
any one can explain me how to get clear sol and gel
i am doing sol gel process
i know that temparature and PH is important
but i dont know how to achive that temparature and PH
that is research but i cant waste chemicals please give some suggestion

hi everyone,

Greetings. I want to characterize ZnO for TEM. Can any of you suggest me a suitable solvent for dispersing ZnO?

many thanks,
Ram.

Hi Ram007,

just one question. I want to what your research work is about? preparation of ZnO nanoparticles or just TEM observation for ZnO? because now I want to do some work about preparation of ZnO nanoparticles by sol gel method or disperse ZnO in some kind of solvent, would you or other person here can give me some advice if you are doing the same work? Thank you!

MEA (monoethaolamine) is very good dispersion agent for ZnO.

read some literatures and find out basic information regarding Sol -Gel. There you will find nearest compositions and processing conditions. Dr Ganguli (CGCRI) have lots of literature if you can find.
