Facile Synthesis and Characterization of Novel Gd2O3/CdO Binary Mixed Oxide Nanocomposites of Highly Photocatalytic Activity for Wastewater Remediation under Solar Illumination
In this study, pure cadmium oxide (CdO) nanoparticles as well as a mixed gadolinium oxide (Gd2O3)/CdO nanocomposites with mixing contents (0% ≤ Gd2O3 content ≤ 15%) were synthesized via facile precipitation technique followed by calcined treatment. X-ray diffraction analysis illustrated that all samples have high cubic phase purity and well crystalline nature. The as-synthesized CdO nanoparticles exhibited only the expected ... Read more
