Controlled Synthesis of CeO2 Nanostructure via Electrospinning and Chemical Etching


Article Preview

Combining the versatility of electrospinning and chemical etching technique enables selective controlled synthesis of CeO2 nanostructure. The as-prepared CeO2 material exhibits one- or two- dimensional microstructure based on different processing conditions. XRD and EDX characterization demonstrated that SrFeO3 crystal particles as template can be introduced into the bulk of CeO2 nanofiber using co-electrospinning to optimize related nanostructures. SEM images showed that the electrospun nanofiber of ceria can be transformed into nanoparticles, nanofibers or porous films according to treatment conditions.
