Silica And Ice Template Creates Holey Microfibers
With a "brick and mortar" assembly approach, researchers have made porous, hollow carbon/metal oxide microfibers with well-controlled pore structures (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja800376t). Such composites of carbon and metal oxide are useful for catalysis, electrochemistry, and electrooptical applications. Although existing techniques produce uniform pore structures in carbon fibers, materials researchers say precise control over the formation of uniform pores . . .
