Metal-layer-assisted coalescence of Au nanoparticles and its effect on diameter control in vapor-liquid-solid growth of oxide nanowires
By using the Au-catalyzed vapor-liquid-solid growth of ZnO and In2O3 nanowires as examples,we demonstrate the critical role of the coalescence of Au catalyst nanoparticles in determining the final diameter distribution of ...
Graphene-based materials : synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications
Graphene, a two-dimensional, single-layer sheet of sp2 hybridized carbon atoms, has attracted tremendous attention and research interest, owing to its exceptional physical properties, such as high electronic conductivity, ...
Synthesis of hexagonal close-packed gold nanostructures
Solid gold is usually most stable as a face-centred cubic (fcc) structure. To date, no one has synthesized a colloidal form of Au that is exclusively hexagonal close-packed (hcp) and stable under ambient conditions. Here ...
