Abstract

We report the effect of varying the starting materials and experimental conditions on the shape control of CeO2 nanocrystals using hydrothermal methods, including using different cerium precursors (Ce3+: Ce(NO3)3 and Ce4+: Ce(NH4)2(NO3)6), stirring treatment, and oxidation of cerium(III) hydroxide. It was demonstrated that the formation of Ce(OH)3 nuclei is a key step to growth of different morphological CeO2 nanocrystals.
