Synthesis of VO2 Nanocrystalline via Hydrothermal Method


Article Preview

Vanadium dioxide nanocrystalline of various morphology have been synthesized from V2O5 sol and organic molecules as the structure-directing templates under hydrothermal conditions. XRD, TEM and SEM are applied to study the characteristics of samples. Cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate (SDBS) are demonstrated to be appropriate templates for the formation of vanadium dioxide nanocrystalline. The probable formation mechanisms of the vanadium dioxide are also discussed.
