Self-curled coral-like γ-Al₂O₃ nanoplates for use as an adsorbent.

Biomimetic self-curled nanoplates assembled coral-like nanoporous γ-Al2O3 has been prepared by a solvothermal method using ethylene glycol (EG)H2O as the mixed solvent, followed by the annealing process. The resulting samples are composed of micro/nanostructured units (∼1.5 μm) with self-curled porous nanoplates on the surface. The volume ratio of EG to… CONTINUE READING
