Surfactant Controlled Growth of Niobium Oxide Nanorods

Surfactant Controlled Growth of Niobium Oxide Nanorods
Byron D. Gates, Amir H. Nazemi, Rana Faryad Ali
This study demonstrates a solution-phase synthesis of uniform single-crystalline nanorods of niobium oxide (Nb2O5) using a process of oriented attachment. The reaction mixture was systematically studied through the addition of surfactants, which provided insight into controlling crystal formation and growth. Regularity of the dimensions and shapes of the product can be tuned by adjusting the composition and concentration of these surfactants.
