Structure and Morphology Study of Cobalt Oxide Doped Silica Nanocomposite Films

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Cobalt oxide doped silica films were synthesized by a dip-coating technique Initial compounds were cobalt acetate Co(CH(3)COO)(2) 4H(2)O and tetraethoxysilane Si(OC(2)H(3))(4) The chemical composition was studied by X-ray diffraction and UV-Vis spectroscopy. The morphology analyses were carried out by means of atomic force microscopy. The average diameter of cobalt oxide dispersed particles increases with the molar ratio Co center dot Si and with the aging time of the initial colloidal solution
