Synthesis and Characterization of Nanodispersed Powders of Tin Oxide (IV) from Tin Oxalate (II)

We synthesize powders of tin oxide (IV) from tin (II) oxalate by thermal method with and without chemical pretreatment. The microstructures of samples are investigated by XR-diffraction and microscopic methods of analysis. We establish that the powders obtained by both methods have a tetragonal structure of rutile. It was determined that the sample obtained by chemical method followed by heat treatment, has a more porous structure than the sample obtained by thermal method. The lattice parameters and size of crystallite of the samples are calculated.
