Preparation of α-Ni(OH)2 with Flowerlike Hierarchical Architectures via Homogeneous Precipitation Method
Without using any templates or surfactants, flowerlike α-nickel hydroxide (Ni(OH)2) was successfully synthesized by homogeneous precipitation method. The prepared products were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and N2 adsorption-desorption. The prepared Ni(OH)2 is α-phase with specific surface area of 245.0 m2/g and shows flowerlike structure with 4-6 um in diameter.
