Hyperbranched monoclinic BiVO(4) (h-BiVO(4)) has been synthesized on a large scale and with good uniformity by a surfactant-free hydrothermal route. h-BiVO(4) consists of four trunks with branches distributed on opposite sides. From observation of the intermediates at an early stage of the reaction process, it can be seen that during formation h-BiVO(4) has different growth rates along the a, b, and c axes. Based on crystal structure analysis and experimental results, h-BiVO(4) shows… CONTINUE READING
