γ-Al2O3 nanorods with tuneable dimensions-a mechanistic understanding of their hydrothermal synthesis

Tamsin Bell, JM González-Carballo, RP Tooze & L Torrente-Murciano
This paper reports for the first time the size control of well-defined and morphologically pure alumina (γ-Al 2 O 3 ) nanorods, presenting an economic and reproducible route for the manufacture of these materials with tuneable sizes for useful applications, for example serving as adsorbents, catalysts and catalyst supports. A detailed understanding of the different steps taking place during the hydrothermal synthesis has been deduced herein. Understanding the effect of temperature on the relative rates...
