Abstract:Zirconium oxide hollow sphere with nanoscale 3D dimensions was successfully synthesized using the carbon sphere as a hard template in which ZrOCl2 was used as a metal oxide precursor. Slow hydrolysis of zirconium oxide precursor yields a thin layer coating over the carbon sphere after subsequent calcinations at elevated temperature results hollow spheres of uniform-sized ZrO2 was obtained. Cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) studies were used to establish the interfacial el… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
