Synthesis of Nanocrystalline ZnWO_4 via Molten Salt Route and Its Photoluminescence
ZnWO<SUB>4</SUB> nanocrystalline powder has been synthesized by the molten salt route using KNO<SUB>3</SUB>/NaNO<SUB>3</SUB> mixture as reaction media. Pure ZnWO<SUB>4</SUB> phase was obtained at 250 °C for 2 h without any intermediate phase. Particle size and morphology of the powder were studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The luminescent properties of the final powder as functions of the reaction temperature and time have been studied.
