Abstract: The synthesis, characterization, and application as polymers and anti-wear additives of nanosized zinc oxide particles obtained by conventional and supercritical ethanol drying are reported in this study. The nanaoparticles of ZnO produced by the two different drying techniques were characterized using Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectrophotometry, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) to elucidate the shape, size, composition, and stability of the nanoparticles. ZnO nanoparticles were then applied to poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC) powder and light mineral oil to assess their effectiveness and suitability as additives in diverse areas. XRD analysis revealed ZnO crystalline structure with average particle size of 24.7 nm for zinc oxide nanoparticles prepared by supercritical ethanol drying while SEM showed well-isolated and monodisperse particles with average size of 61.08 nm. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
