What is it about?
We produce a simple method to create very small particles of ZnO inside a porous host by thermal decomposition of Zinc acetate under humid conditions.

Why is it important?
This method excludes the reflux step of the ZnO precursor to produce smaller ZnO particles ( in quantum size). Also avoid the basic hydrolysis step, which damages the silica host.
