Hierarchical Zinc Oxide Materials with Multiple Porosity Prepared by Ultrafast Temperature Gradient Chemical Gas-Phase Synthesis

The preparation of materials characterized by three types of porosity could be prepared by a continuous chemical gas-phase method. The multistep formation mechanism involves a critical temperature gradient and occurs within seconds. The resulting hollow aerogel materials show superior properties as gas sensors in comparison to materials constructed from compact nanoparticles.
