AlO(OH) hollow spheres are realized via a water-in-oil (w/o) microemulsion, applying the liquid-to-liquid-phase boundary of the micellar system as a template. Scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and dynamic light scattering analyses show the presence of nonagglomerated hollow spheres exhibiting an outer diameter of about 30 nm and a wall thickness of 5−6 nm. High-resolution TEM images show highly ordered lattice fringes, indicating the crystallinity of the… CONTINUE READING
