Title: Ultrasound-assisted green synthesis of nanocrystalline Co{sub 3}O{sub 4} in the ionic liquid

Cobalt oxide Co{sub 3}O{sub 4} nanoparticles have been synthesized via sonochemical method in an ionic liquid, 1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate [EMIM][BF4] for the first time. The crystal structure of Co{sub 3}O{sub 4} nanoparticles has been characterized by using powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). Morphology has been characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The optical properties were studied by UV-VIS Spectrometer.
