Abstract

Abstract Cadmium hydroxide (Cd(OH)2) microcrystals were synthesized in ethanol–water medium by using cadmium chloride as cadmium source and 1,10-phenanthroline as complexation agent under solvothermal condition. The sample was characterized by FT-IR, X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and TEM. The as-prepared Cd(OH)2 product were transformed to hexagonal CdO nanocubes by thermal treatment in air at 500°C. The possible growth mechanism for the formation of different morphologies at basic medium has been proposed. DPV experiments were carried out for the simultaneous determination of norfloxacin and lomefloxacin in the acetate buffer solution with pH 4.5.
