“Grain boundary” engineering in electrospun ZnO nanostructures

“Grain boundary” engineering in electrospun ZnO nanostructures

Electrospun ZnO nanofibers have received increased attention as photocatalysts owing to their potential for incredible performance. However, uncertainty still exists in determining the correlation between grain boundaries and photocatalytic activity. Dr Anitha Senthamizhanm, Dr Brabu Balusamy and Dr Zeynep Aytac presented a research work to investigate the temperature induced structural evolution of Zinc oxide nanostructures [...]
