Facile Green Synthesis of WO3·H2O Nanoplates and WO3 Nanowires with Enhanced Photoelectrochemical Performance

Facile Green Synthesis of WO3·H2O Nanoplates and WO3 Nanowires with Enhanced Photoelectrochemical Performance
Debabrata Pradhan, Arpan Kumar Nayak, Youngku Sohn
A green synthesis strategy is demonstrated for the synthesis of WO3·H2O nanoplates at room temperature using ethanol as only solvent. WO3·H2O nanoplates were slowly transformed to WO3 nanowires at 200°C as solvothermal reaction duration increased. The photoelectrochemical activity of the as-synthesized (200) oriented WO3 nanowires is found to be ∼21 times higher than that of WO3·H2O nanoplates.
