Abstract

Silicon oxide nanowires were synthesized with high-temperature evaporation using silicon monoxide as starting materials and tin and gallium as catalysts. The products take the shape of flowers with petals composed of silicon oxide nanowires. The pH response of the products reveals excellent linear relation due to their vast surface area. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
