Application of Zinc Oxide Powder：
Zinc oxide is a multifunctional compound with a wide range of applications. It is an oxide of zinc with the chemical formula ZnO. Zinc oxide is a white solid powder, insoluble in water, but has a high melting point and good chemical stability.
In the chemical industry, zinc oxide is an essential raw material that can be used in the manufacture of various zinc salts and organic zinc compounds. For example, zinc sulfate, zinc chloride, zinc acetate, etc., compounds have a wide range of applications in electroplating, batteries, dyes, pharmaceuticals, and other fields.
In the field of coatings, zinc oxide is a commonly used white pigment with excellent hiding power and coloring power, which can be used to manufacture various coatings and paints.
In addition, zinc oxide can also be used in the manufacture of ceramics and glass as an additive that can improve the hardness and heat resistance of products. In the electronics industry, zinc oxide can be used to manufacture electronic devices such as varistors and gas sensors, which have a wide range of applications in circuit protection and gas detection.
In the biomedical field, zinc oxide has also shown a wide range of application prospects. Because zinc oxide has good biocompatibility and antibacterial properties, it can be used to manufacture biological materials and medical devices, such as artificial joints, dental materials, and so on. In addition, zinc oxide can also be used in drug carriers and drug delivery systems, which can achieve directional transmission and controlled release of drugs, improve the efficacy of drugs, and reduce side effects.
In short, zinc oxide, as a multifunctional compound, has broad application prospects in the chemical industry, coatings, ceramic glass, electronics industry, and biomedicine. With the continuous development of science and technology, the application field of zinc oxide will be further expanded, bringing more convenience and value to human production and life.
In addition to the applications mentioned earlier, zinc oxide also has a wide range of applications in the fields of photocatalysis, solar cells, sensors, etc. In terms of photocatalysis, zinc oxide can be used to degrade organic pollutants and sterilize them. In solar cells, zinc oxide can be used as a window layer material or a light absorption layer material to improve the photoelectric conversion efficiency of the battery. In terms of sensors, zinc oxide can be used to detect changes in gas, humidity, temperature, and other physical parameters, with high sensitivity, fast response speed, and other advantages.
The difference between highly dispersed active zinc oxide and ordinary zinc oxide：
Ordinary zinc oxide is usually presented as blocky or granular, with different particle sizes and uneven distribution. Due to its low surface area and irregular shape, the chemical reactivity of ordinary zinc oxide is low, and it is challenging to achieve efficient applications in some fields.
Highly dispersed active zinc oxide has excellent particle size and highly dispersed properties. This fine particle structure provides a larger surface area, making active zinc oxide more reactive.
The chemical properties of ordinary zinc oxide are relatively stable, and it is not easy to react with other substances. Therefore, in some cases where higher reactivity is required, common zinc oxide may not meet the requirements.
Highly dispersed active zinc oxide has stronger chemical reactivity due to its high surface area and fine particle structure. It can react with surrounding materials more quickly, improving application efficiency. In addition, the chemical properties of highly dispersed active zinc oxide are relatively functional and can adapt to more chemical reaction conditions and application fields.
Due to the relatively weak physical and chemical properties of ordinary zinc oxide, its application range is limited. In some cases where high reactivity is required, standard zinc oxide may not achieve ideal performance.
For example, in the fields of catalysts, sensors, batteries, etc., highly dispersed active zinc oxide is an ideal choice due to its high reactivity and excellent performance. At the same time, due to its high dispersion and fine particle structure, highly dispersed active zinc oxide can provide better performance and stability in the manufacture of coatings, plastics, rubber, and other materials.
The preparation method of ordinary zinc oxide is relatively simple, usually using the traditional chemical precipitation method or high-temperature calcination method. Although these methods are mature, it is challenging to obtain zinc oxide with high dispersion and fine particle structure.
Highly dispersed active zinc oxide requires unique preparation methods to obtain fine particles and highly distributed structures. For example, microemulsion method, sol-gel method, chemical vapor deposition, and other methods can be used. These preparation methods often require precise control of reaction conditions and parameters to obtain the desired particle size and dispersion.
Use and value
Common zinc oxide is commonly used in traditional fields such as ceramics, glass, and coatings. Due to its low reactivity and performance, the use of ordinary zinc oxide in these fields is limited.
Highly dispersed active zinc oxide has broad application prospects in many emerging fields because of its high reactivity and excellent performance. For example, in new energy, environmental protection, biomedicine, and other fields, highly dispersed active zinc oxide can play an important role. In addition, because of its high value and potential application prospects, highly distributed active zinc oxide has become the focus of research.
