HOT Article: Nano-bamboo shoots

In this CrystEngComm HOT Article, two kinds of micro/nano-sized single-crystalline cuprous oxide (Cu2O) crystals with novel porous cubic or hierarchical rod-like morphologies were successfully synthesized via a facile ethanol-assisted double-solvothermal method. It was found that the addition of ethanol in precursor solution is critical for the formation of hierarchical rod-like structures (nano-bamboo shoots). Their growth process and shape evolution together with their optical properties and field emission have also been reported.
