Morphology-directed synthesis of Co3O4 nanotubes based on modified Kirkendall effect and its application in CH4 combustion
We reported the morphology-directed synthesis of Co 3O 4 nanotubes via interfacial reaction of NaOH with pre-fabricated CoC 2O 4·2H 2O nanorods based on modified Kirkendall effect. The as-obtained Co 3O 4 nanotubes showed excellent activity and durability in catalytic combustion of CH 4.
