Abstract

Micro to nano sized GaOOH nanorods and particles were prepared under varying hydrothermal conditions without any surfactant and additive using gallium nitrate and sodium hydroxide as starting materials. The combination of X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Small Area Electron Diffraction (SAED) and Energy Dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), Thermogravimetric analysis (TG) and FT-IR were employed to characterize the resulting gallium oxide hydroxide nanorods. Detailed results and the possible growth mechanism are presented.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
