Abstract

Sb2O3 nano-particles are synthesized by thermal oxidation in this research. Pure Sb granular is put in the middle of a tube furnace at an air pressure of 1 aim with a flow rate of 4.0 ml/min. The furnace temperature at the position of samples is set at 550°C. Si wafer, glass and Al foil are used as substrates, which are put the downstream of gas flow to collect Sb oxide. The collected Sb oxides on different substrates are examined with field emission scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffractometer and transmission electron microscopy. Sb oxide obtained in this method shows Sb 2O3 nano-particles with strong {111} growth texture. The mechanism of synthesis of Sb2O3 nanoparticles is analyzed, based on the experiment results.
