Description
In nanomaterials, cobalt oxide nanopowder can refer to one of three related but distinct nanopowders: CoO, Co2O3, and Co3O4. In each form, cobalt oxide nanopowder serves as a vital inorganic material with a variety of applications. Each is a fine powder composed of particles of cobalt oxide smaller than 100nm in diameter, but from there they vary in properties and applications.
CoO is a greyish green powder; Co2O3 is a greyish black powder; Co3O4 is a black powder available with smaller particle sizes.

 

Applications


1- Catalysts: As is the case for many nanomaterials, cobolt oxide nanopowders have been utilized as catalysts and catalyst carriers for a variety of reasons. Most notably, they’re useful in organic synthesis, in heterogenous catalysts, and as an electroactive catalyst material.


2- Electronics: The unique properties of cobalt oxide nanopowders see them used and experimented with in a number of electronic applications, including semiconductors, superconductors, electronic ceramics, lithium ion batteries, electrochromic devices, and solar energy absorbers.
