Biomimetically Influenced Synthesis of ZnO Dahlia-Flower Shaped Nanoarchitectures
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Three dimensional ZnO dahlia-flower nanoarchitectures have been engineered at room temperature relying on natural oxidation based aqueous chemical synthetic approach. Glycine abetted multicomponent isotropic morphology has been synthesized through the conglomeration of thin nanopetals as building blocks with highly large surface area to volume ratio. Multi-oriented ZnO crystal structure has been achieved by stabilizing its polar surfaces through the adsorption of reactive hydroxyl and amide functions of glycine, exemplifying good corroboration towards x-rays diffraction and Fourier transform infrared ratiocinations.
