The Controlled Synthesis of Single-Crystalline Cd(OH)2 Nanoparticles with Different Morphologies
Single crystalline Cd(OH)2 low-dimensional nanostructures, such as nanowires, nanobelts, and nanorolls have been controlled synthesized through a convenient, low-temperature hydrothermal method. Moreover, the shape and diameter of 1D Cd(OH)2 nanostructures can be facilely controlled through adjusting the experiment factors. The influences of the ammonia concentration, temperature on the morphology of Cd(OH)2 are investigated, and a possible mechanism involved adjustable growth properties from kinetic growth stage to thermodynamic growth stage has been discussed. This work has also provided a general, simple, and effective method to control the shape of other transition-metal carbonate.
