Abstract In this work, highly porous WO 3 nanotubes (NTs) were synthesized by facile layer-by-layer (LbL) self-assembly on polymeric nanofiber (NF) templates followed by calcination. Polymeric NFs using poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) were prepared by electrospinning as sacrificial templates. Then, ionic polymers were coated on PMMA to modify the surface charge of PMMA NFs. Catalyst-loaded WO 3 NTs were synthesized by self-assembly of tungsten precursor and catalytic precursor on the surface… CONTINUE READING
