Abstract

Cerium Oxide (CeO2) nanocubes are synthesized by using hydrothermal treatment method in the presence of four different types of ionic liquid such as acetate anion, phosphate anion, and dicyanamide anion. Ceria nanocubes has been consisted with average size of 16 to 31 nm in diameter and characterized by transmission electron microscope (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and surface analyzer and porosimetry analysis (ASAP). Ceria nanocubes have higher photocatalytical ability in the degradation of methylene blue as compared to commercial ceria nanoparticles which are confirmed through ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV/Vis).
