Hollow Alumina Microsphere Chain Networks
Hollow Al(2)O(3) microsphere chain networks have been synthesized via a simple two-staged pyrolysis of a precursor using active carbon powders as the template. The obtained networks are characterized using scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and transmission electron microscopy. The chain networks are formed by subsequent aggregation of the prior formed hollow Al(2)O(3) microspheres. The obtained chain networks are promising for the applications in catalyst support, filtration, and other applications due to their lightweight and highly porous nature.
