Preparation of Nano-Sized Silver Oxide in the Nanoporous VSB-1 Crystal
Ultra-small silver oxide was synthesized using the novel nanoporous nickel phosphate VSB-1 as the template by a simple method under mild experimental conditions. The UV-vis spectra of the as-synthesized silver oxide showed a large blue shift of ca. 200 nm comparing with that of the bulk Ag2O and which may come from the confinement of the pore size. The intensities of the XRD diffraction peaks of the host after assembly decreased along with the increase the concentration of AgNO3 solution used.
