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 ...
Shape-controlled synthesis of cobalt-based nanocubes, nanodiscs, and nanoflowers and their comparative lithium-storage properties
Facile hydrothermal methods have been developed to synthesize large Co3O4 nanocubes, β-Co(OH)2 hexagonal nanodiscs and nanoflowers. Samples are thoroughly characterized by field-emission scanning electron microscopy, ...
Top-down fabrication of α-Fe2O3 single-crystal nanodiscs and microparticles with tunable porosity for largely improved lithium storage properties
In this work, we report a facile top-down approach to fabricate uniform single-crystal α-Fe2O3 nanodiscs via selective oxalic acid etching. Phosphate ions are employed as a capping agent to control the etching to along the ...
Controlled synthesis of Sb nanostructures and their conversion to CoSb3 nanoparticle chains for li-ion battery electrodes
Nanostructured Sb was prepared through a simple polyol process. Either Sb nanoparticles (Sb NP) or nanowires (Sb NW) were obtained by adjusting the concentration of surfactant. Electrochemical analyses revealed that the ...
Fast synthesis of α-MoO3 nanorods with controlled aspect ratios and their enhanced lithium storage capabilities
Uniform α-MoO3 nanorods are synthesized with controlled aspect ratios through a fast hydrothermal route. The control over the aspect ratio of these as-prepared nanorods is realized by applying different reaction times of ...
Synthesis, characterization, and lithium storage capability of AMoO4 (A = Ni, Co) nanorods
One-dimensional (1D) AMoO4·nH2O (A = Ni, Co) nanorods have been synthesized by a facile hydrothermal method. The effect of different synthetic conditions on the morphologies of the final products was systematically ...
