A novel hierarchical Ni-Co hydroxide assembled from two-wheeled units was successfully synthesized via a simple, hydrothermal method through the reaction of nickel salt, cobalt salt and sodium hydroxide, and with a chelating agent (EDA) to control the precipitation rate. The as-synthesized materials were characterized by x-ray diffraction (XRD), field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM… CONTINUE READING
