Analyzing Zinc Oxide Particles

Researchers performed a simultaneous TG/DSC study of thiol-capped ZnO nanoparticles with an evolved gas analysis by FTIR and MS.

Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles are under investigation for the synthesis of materials with tunable magnetic and electric properties and for possible medical applications in cancer therapy. In this study, a sample of thiol-capped ZnO nanoparticles was studied by simultaneous thermogravimetry (TG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) using a NETZSCH STA 449 F1 Jupiter® thermal analyzer.
