Abstract

Present study describes synthesis of highly active and ordered nanoscale structures of nickel catalysts. The study reveals efficient catalytic activity for the degradation of toxic and lethal organic dye Eosin-B (EB). The stable colloidal dispersions of ordered nickel nanostructures (Ni NSs) arrays were prepared via modified hydrazine reduction route with unique morphologies in a lyotropic liquid crystalline medium using Triton x-100. The characterization studies like optimization of various parameters for preparation of nanoscale nickel structures, surface binding interactions, size and morphologies of Ni NSs were carried out by IN-Visible Spectroscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) Analysis.
