Goethite nanotubes have been synthesised using polyethylene oxide surfactant as a directing agent. The surfactant enables the goethite to crystallise along a specific pathway and does not affect the crystal structure of the mineral but rather the agglomeration of the mineral. The crystals reach an optimum size at which the surfactant can bond.

Citation counts are 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.
