Natural tubule clay template synthesis of silver nanorods for antibacterial composite coating.


Halloysite is naturally available clay mineral with hollow cylindrical geometry and it is available in thousands of tons. Silver nanorods were synthesized inside the lumen of the halloysite by thermal decomposition of the silver acetate, which was loaded into halloysite from an aqueous solution by vacuum cycling.
