Zinc tungstate is an inorganic material which shows immense potential in diverse areas such as photoluminescence, sodium-ion batteries, and catalysis. Thus, the synthesis and characterization of ZnWO4 by ultrasonic spray pyrolysis using different heat treatments (between 750 degrees C and 1000 degrees C) is reported herein. X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy were used to confirm the formation of the ZnWO4 with wolframite-type monoclinic structure. Scanning electron microscopy images revealed that the ZnWO4 particles have a microsphere-like morphology formed by the junction of different nanocrystals and its surface changed by heat treatment. The bandgap energies had a small variation among the samples (3.88 eV-3.98 eV). The photoluminescence emission of the samples showed a broadband spectrum with white light, in which structural alterations occurred with the increase in the heat treatment, which also increased the emission intensity and broadband. The samples synthesized at 950 degrees C and 1000 degrees C showed to be promising warmand neutral-white light emission sources. (AU)
