Abstract: Zn(NO3)2·6H2O and C4K2O9Ti·2H2O with 1:1 and 2:1 M ratios of Zn:Ti in solutions at the pH 10 were irradiated by 180 W microwave radiation for 40 min to form ZnO/TiO2nanocomposites, new candidates for photodegradation and photoreduction in UV light with very high efficiency. Upon processing the nanocomposites at high temperatures, pure Zn2TiO4nanocrystals were synthesized only by the 700 °C and 3 h calcination of the 2:1 M ratio Zn:Ti precursors. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
