A vapor-solid strategy to silica sheathed metal nanostructures and microstructures via reactions of metal chlorides with silicon.

Abstract

A facile vapor-solid strategy has been developed to prepare silica-sheathed metal micro/nanostructures with controllable shapes. As examples, silica-sheathed nickel nanowires (diameter approximately 50 nm), microcubes (edge length 1-3 microm), nanocubes (edge length approximately 200 nm) with an epitaxial tail (diameter<100 nm), and 1D assembly structures… (More)
