Abstract: We report the synthesis of single-crystalline α-Fe2O 3 nanoflakes from a simple Fe-air reaction within the temperatures range of 260-400 °C. The nanoflakes synthesized at the lowest temperature (260 °C) in this work show an ultra-sharp morphology: 5-10 nm in thickness, 1-2 μm in length, 20 nm in base-width and around 5 nm at the tips; successfully demonstrate the promising electron field emission properties of a large-scaled α-Fe2O3 nanostructure film and exhibit the potential applications as future field-emission (FE) electron sources and displays (FEDs). The formation and growth of α-Fe2O3 nanostructures were discussed based on the surface diffusion mechanism. © 2007 Springer-Verlag.
