Nanotubes of Mixed-Valence, Transition Metal Compounds Synthesized by Solution Phase Approach
Abstract:A solution-phase approach to synthesize four kinds of mixed-valence, transition metal compounds nanotube is described. The approach is based on the self-assembly of siloxane sol. The resulted production of mixed-valence, transition metal compounds share a common structural characteristic of tubular geometrical morphology, at least for the ones we studied. The results demonstrate that the synthesis strategy can be a general route for preparation of compound nanotubes. In addition, the size control of nanotubular materials can be easily achieved through varying the ionic strength of solution. Based on the strategy, the diameters of ultrathin Ru–Fe nanotubes can be easily tuned between 100 nm and 800 nm.
