Zinc Oxide (ZnO) Nanopowder, ZnO Nanoparticles, ~ 18 nm, >99.5% purity

High purity Zinc oxide (ZnO) powders for applications in electronics, cosmetics, food, and biomedicines

Insoluble in water, zinc oxide is normally in the form of white powder with the chemical formula ZnO. Zinc oxide is an n-type semiconducting metal oxide with a direct band gap of 3.37 eV, large excitation binding energy (60 meV) and deep violet/borderline ultraviolet (UV) absorption at room temperature.

Zinc oxide possesses favourable electrical, mechanical, and optical properties and it has wide range of applications from electronics, cosmetics, food to biomedicines. As an additive, ZnO has been added pigments, sealants, ointments, adhesives, lubricants, plastics, paints, fire retardants, rubber, cement, glass and ceramic to either enhance their physical properties. Owing to its high thermal and mechanical stability at room temperature and piezo- and pyroelectric properties, ZnO has been applied in the fields electronics, optoelectronics, laser, photocatalyst, energy generator and sensor. With relatively high biocompatibility, ZnO nanoparticles have an inherent nature of showing selective cytotoxicity against cancerous cells in in vitro condition compared with other nanoparticles.

Zinc oxide nanoparticles can be produced on a large scale at low cost by simple solution-based methods such as chemical precipitation, sol-gel synthesis, and solvothermal/hydrothermal reaction. zinc oxide nanoparticles synthesised by using the environmentally benign extract of the aerial parts of D. tortuosa as a reducing and capping agent, showed an attractive selective cytotoxic activity in cancer therapy.
