Tube in a tube: A general strategy for the fabrication of novel complex tube-in-tube nanostructures for many metal oxides has been developed. The method involves coating carbon nanofibers with a layer of metal glycolate followed by calcination in air. The unique complex tubular structures of metal oxides are shown to exhibit promising properties for the title applications.
