Template-Assisted Synthesis of Metal Oxide Hollow Spheres Utilizing Glucose Derived-Carbonaceous Spheres As Sacrificial Templates

A series of metal oxides hollow spheres (Cr2 O3 , α-Fe2 O3 , Co3 O4 , NiO and ZnO) have been fabricated using the glucose derived-carbonaceous spheres as sacrificial templates and the metal chlorides as precursors for the metal oxides in a sacrificial templating process. Heating of an aqueous solution of the metal chloride and glucose in an autoclave at 180 ºC affords - as indicated by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) - a nanospherical composite consisting of a metal precursor shell sheathing a carbonaceous core.
