Hydrothermal Synthesis of Monodisperse Leaf-Like Boehmite Nanosheets: Transformation from Irregular to Regular Morphology
Uniform and monodisperse boehmite (γ-AlOOH) nanosheets with a thickness of less than 20 nm have been prepared by the hydrothermal treatment of amorphous boehmite. XRD and FTIR analysis showed that boehmite nanosheets have uniform and high degree of crystallinity. SEM micrographs indicated that boehmite has a leaf-like morphology with high anisotropy (with a length of 0.25～1 m and a width of 50～100 nm).
