Research Abstract:
Nanoparticles of cerium oxide with a narrow size distribution (± 15%) are prepared by mixing cerium nitrate solution with an ammonium reagent. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) indicates that over 99% of the synthesized particles are single crystals. TEM and photon absorption more info
