Hydrothermal Synthesis and Characterization of Single-Crystal Lead Titanate Nanoflakes
Single-crystal PbTiO3 nanoflakes have been synthesized successfully by a hydrothermal method. The as-prepared powders were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high-resolution TEM (HRTEM), and selected area electron diffraction (SAED). It was found that KOH concentration played a key role in the growth of single-crystal tetragonal perovskite PbTiO3 nanoflakes, and the morphology of PbTiO3 crystallites can be controlled by adjusting the KOH concentration.
