Data from M.H. Wang and Colleagues Advance Knowledge in Zinc Oxide Nanotechnology (Synthesis of ZnO@Co2O3-Bi2O3-MnO core-shell structured nanoparticles for varistors applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Business Journal -- Research findings on Nanotechnology are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Changzhou, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "In this paper, ZnO@Co2O3-Bi2O3-MnO nanocomposites with a homogeneous core-shell nanostructure have been synthesized by encapsulating Co2O3-Bi2O3-MnO on the surfaces of the as-prepared ZnO nanoparticles via an in situ precipitation method."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "Techniques of XRD, TEM, SEM and EDS have been employed to characterize the as-synthesized nanopowders and varistor samples."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The results showed that ZnO nanoparticles were fully covered with additional metal oxides and Bi12Mn0.5Co0.5O20 phase was observed at the as-prepared ZnO nanopowders after calcined at 700 degrees C. The varistor ceramics sintered at 1100 degrees C for 2 h in air have a density of 5.56 g/cm(3) corresponding to 96.2% of the theoretical density, with breakdown voltage of 3285 V/cm and nonlinear coefficient of similar to 5.5."
