Abstract

The morphology and particle size of neodymium-doped ZnO hybrid nanoparticles were tailored through fabrication under mild hydrothermal conditions (T = 150–250 °C, P = autogeneous, t = 18 h) for the first time using two surface modifiers: caprylic acid and n-butylamine. Characterization of these nanoparticles was carried out using powder XRD, FTIR, SEM, zeta-potential analysis and UV-vis spectroscopy. The results revealed that modification of ZnO nanoparticles using neodymium as a dopant and caprylic acid or n-butylamine as a surfactant could change the optical and physical properties of the surface-modified neodymium-doped ZnO hybrid nanoparticles. The work proved the efficiency of caprylic acid and n-butylamine as suitable surfactants for surface modification of neodymium-doped ZnO hybrid nanoparticles.
