Abstract

In this work, single-crystalline α-FeOOH nanorods with a length of 400–700 nm and a diameter of 20–80 nm were successfully synthesized via a facile template-free hydrothermal method. Single-crystalline mesoporous α-Fe2O3 and Fe3O4 nanorods could be obtained from these α-FeOOH precursors after calcining at 350 °C in air and 500 °C in nitrogen, respectively. The as-prepared single-crystalline mesoporous α-Fe2O3 and Fe3O4 nanorods exhibited a large specific surface area and porosity, effectively enhancing the electrochemical reaction area and accommodate the strain during the charge–discharge cycling process.
