Engineering nonspherical hollow structures with complex interiors by template-engaged redox etching
Despite the significant advancement in making hollow structures, one unsolved challenge in the field is how to engineer hollow structures with specific shapes, tunable compositions, and desirable interior structures. In ...
One-step synthesis of SnO2 and TiO2 hollow nanostructures with various shapes and their enhanced lithium storage properties
A versatile one-step method for the general synthesis of metal oxide hollow nanostructures is demonstrated. This method involves the controlled deposition of metal oxides on shaped α-Fe2O3 crystals which are ...
Ultralong α-MoO3 nanobelts : synthesis and effect of binder choice on their lithium storage properties
Ultralong α-MoO3 nanobelts with an average length of 200–300 μm and uniform width of around 0.6–1.5 μm have been synthesized by a facile hydrothermal method using a molybdenum organic salt precursor. When evaluated for ...
α-Fe2O3-mediated growth and carbon nanocoating of ultrafine SnO2 nanorods as anode materials for Li-ion batteries
Bulk synthesis of SnO2 nanorods under acidic conditions has rarely been reported. In this work, ultrafine SnO2 nanorods with a diameter of less than 10 nm and a length of 50–100 nm have been synthesized by an interesting ...
Assembling carbon-coated α-Fe2O3 hollow nanohorns on the CNT backbone for superior lithium storage capability
Novel hierarchical nanostructures composed of carbon coated a- Fe2O3 hollow nanohorns on carbon nanotube (CNT) backbones have been constructed by direct growth and thermal transformation of b-FeOOH nanospindles on CNTs, ...
Green synthesis of NiO nanobelts with exceptional pseudo-capacitive properties
NiO nanobelts are prepared by a simple, green method. The as-prepared NiO nanobelts have supercapacitive performance that is superior to other NiO-based electrode materials, with a very high specific capacitance of ≈600 F ...
