  Transition-metal based nanoparticles have been prepd. at room   temp. and characterized for the purpose of environmental   applications. These nanomaterials are prepd. by a solvothermal   method using various transition metals and para disubstituted   arom. ligands such as aminophenol, hydroquinone,   phenylenediamine, and aminothiophenol. These nanomaterials are   being studied to det. if they could be further reduced by sodium   borohydride (NaBH4). Particle shape, size and size distribution   are studied using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and   powder X-ray diffraction (XRD).
