Abstract [en]

The Ag/calcium silicate nanocomposite with core-shell nanostructure has been successfully synthesized using Ag solution, Ca(NO(3))(2)center dot 4H(2)O and Na(2)SiO(3)center dot 9H(2)O in ethanol/water mixed solvents at room temperature for 48 h. Ag solution was previously prepared by microwave-assisted method in ethylene glycol (EG) at 150 degrees C for 10 min. The nanocomposites consisted of Ag core and an amorphous calcium silicate shell. The XRD and EDS results confirmed that the product was the Ag/calcium silicate nanocomposite. The TEM micrographs indicated that the Ag/calcium silicate nanocomposite was core-shell nanoparticles. The effects of Ca (NO(3))(2)center dot 4H(2)O and Na(2)SiO(3)center dot 9H(2)O concentration on the shells of Ag/calcium silicate nanocomposite were investigated. The products were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and energy-dispersive X-ray spectra (EDS). This method is simple, fast and may be extended to the synthesis of the other kinds of core-shell nanocomposites.
