Catalyst-free synthesis of carbon nanospheres for potential biomedical applications: Waste to wealth approach

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A single step and simple pyrolysis technique is used to prepare carbon nanospheres (CNSs) from natural

    biowaste sago hampas in a nitrogen atmosphere without any catalyst. Scanning electron microscope

    (SEM) images along with transmission electron microscope (TEM) images show evidence of high quality

    CNSs with a good particle size uniformity. Both X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Raman data show the

    presence of graphitic characteristic peaks of CNSs. Zeta-potential study reveals that the obtained CNSs

    can be well dispersed in solution making them suitable for cell imaging applications. The use of biowaste

    sago hampas is very important from the viewpoint of sustainable synthesis of functional CNSs for the future.
