Metal Hydroxide and Metal Oxide Nanostructures from Metal Corrosion
Abstract:Unique metal hydroxide (Co(OH)2 and Mg(OH)2) and metal oxide (Co3O4 and MgO) nanosheet arrays have been successfully achieved on a large scale by simple metal corrosion process in deionized water at room temperature. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) and micro-Raman scattering investigations reveal the crystalline feature of the resulted nanosheets. The magnesium based nanosheet exhibits strong visible photoluminescence (PL) emission. The water wettability of cobalt based nanosheet has also been studied.
