V. Muthupriyal, D. Muthu Raj, E. Kumar*

In this work the preparation of ZnO-SnO2 nanocomposites from ZnO and SnO2 nanoparticles produced by Sol – Gel method. Zinc acetate dihydrate (Zn(CH3COO)2 x 2H2O) and tin(II) chloride dehydrates (SnCl2. 2H2O) have been used as precursors. The structural investigation of ZnO - SnO2 reveal that the ZnO nanoparticle is hexagonal in structure and SnO2 nanoparticle is tetragonal. Nanocompsites in two different molarities synthesized by Sol – Gel method. The Miller indices and the crystalline size ZnO-SnO2 nanocomposites show that the particle size in two different molarities is 62.55 nm and 59.25 nm were determined by powder XRD technique. The spectroscopic functional groups of ZnO-SnO2 nanocomposite were carried out by FT-IR. The absorbance band and the band gap energy of ZnO-SnO2 nanocomposite were calculated from the UV – visible spectrum.
