|Abstract:||A number of nanoscale tin oxide structures including 2-5 nm tin oxide hollow nanoparticles 3-5 nm tin oxide nanocubes 80-120 nm tin-core/tin oxide-shell nanocubes and hollow tin oxide nanocubes have been prepared from phenanthroline (phen)-capped Sn nanoparticles. Transmission electron microscopy revealed the existence of a hollow interior in the tin-core/tin oxide-shell nanostructures. It is believed that the low melting Sn core was hollowed out by electron beam irradiation of the sample during microscopy. The 2-5 nm tin oxide hollow nanoparticles and 80-120 nm tin oxide hollow nanocubes had thin but stable shells capable of preserving the integrity of the large cavity within. © Springer Science+Business Media Inc. 2006.|
