Surfactant-free synthesis of plasmonic tungsten oxide nanowires with visible-light-enhanced hydrogen generation from ammonia borane
Date of Issue2015
School of Materials Science and Engineering
WO3−x nanowires were successfully synthesized through a simple surfactant-free solvothermal method. These nanowires exhibit strong plasmonic absorption in the visible and near-infrared region owing to the abundant oxygen vacancies. The plasmon excitation of these WO3−x nanowires provide five times enhancement on the hydrogen generation from ammonia borane.
