Tungsten carbide metal nanoparticles have been prepared by chemical oxidation of tungsten hexacarbonyl with carbon source (PF) as active agents to reduce tungsten oxide (WO3 and WO2) to tungsten carbide (WC) under chemical process. The effects of all kinds of reaction parameters in the solution on the preparation were studied. The results are from EDX analysis reveal that the as-prepared tungsten metal nanoparticles morphology. A small amount of residual WO3 and WO2 involved in the as-prepared sample would give defense to samples from further oxidation.
