Single-step formation of micron long (OH)3Al2O3Ge(OH) imogolite-like nanotubes

Abstract

Micron-long germanium-based double-walled imogolite nanotubes were synthesized at high concentrations, as evidenced by cryo-TEM, AFM, SAXS and IR characterization methods. In addition, the spontaneous formation of a liquid-crystalline phase was observed. The novel synthesis route made it possible for the first time to obtain both long and concentrated germanium-based imogolite-like nanotubes in a single step.
