Abstract

Advanced nanoparticulate thin films of transition metal oxides consisting of nanorods with different orientations onto various substrates have been successfully grown by aqueous chemical growth without template, surfactant, or applied electric/magnetic field. The synthesis involves the aqueous condensation of metal ions from solutions of metal salts or metal complexes. Such low-cost fabrication of nanoengineered 3-D arrays consisting of 1-D nanorods of iron oxide (hematite), zinc oxide (zincite), and manganese oxyhydroxide (manganite) with parallel and perpendicular orientations onto various substrates are presented.
