Abstract
A template and capping-reagent free facile fabrication method for mesoporous hietarchal micro-architectures of flower-like In(OH)(3) particales under benign hydrothermal conditions is reported Calcination of In(OH)(3) to In2O3 particles under beging hydromal conditions is reported. calci-microstrures were the retention of morphology is also described. Both In(OH)(3) and In2O3 microstuetures were analyzed with SEM, EDX, TEM and powder X-ray diffraction. The crystal sizes for In-2(OH)(3) and InO3 were calculated using the Scherrer equation. In In(OH)(3) the thin flakes at the periphery of micro flowers were electron beam sensitive. The mechanism of self-assembly process was analyzed as well. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reseved.
