Title: Controllable synthesis and characterization of cadmium molybdate octahedral nanocrystals by coprecipitation method

Graphical abstract: CdMoO{sub 4} nanocrystals have been synthesized via coprecipitation method by using Cd(Sal){sub 2} and (NH{sub 4}){sub 6}Mo{sub 7}O{sub 24}·4H{sub 2}O as starting materials in water. Effects of temperature, reaction time, solvent, surfactant, cadmium and molybdate sources were investigated to reach optimum condition. It was found that particle size, morphology and phase of the final products could be greatly influenced via these parameters. - Highlights: • A facile coprecipitation method was successfully employed to prepare CdMoO{sub 4}. • The effects of some parameters were investigated. • PEG600, PVP, SDS and CTAB were used as surfactant. • Optimum condition for preparation CdMoO{sub 4} nanocrystals was investigated. - Abstract: Cadmium molybdate (CdMoO{sub 4}) nanocrystals have been successfully synthesized via coprecipitation method by using Cd(Sal){sub 2} (Sal = salicylidene) and (NH{sub 4}){sub 6}Mo{sub 7}O{sub 24}·4H{sub 2}O as starting materials in water as solvent. Effects of temperature, reaction time, solvent, surfactant and cadmium source were investigated to reach optimum condition. It was found that particle size, morphology and phase of the final products could be greatly influenced via these parameters. The products were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectra, photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis (EDX), scanning electronmore » microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM)« less
