Abstract

Nano-crystalline ZnO particles were synthesized by a reactive ion exchange procedure using ZnSO4 and NaOH as precursors and a strong basic anion exchange resin as substrate. The precursors and ZnO samples were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and UV-Vis spectroscopy. The ZnO particles were club shape, and the synthesis process depended on the reactant concentration of ZnSO4 in the solution. The ZnO powders had high photocatalytic activity and stability for the gradation of methyl orange.
