Abstract

original image

Pick on someone your own size: Size-tunable Co3O4 nanowires, prepared through an iodine-ion-mediated hydrothermal synthesis, were found to be excellent catalysts for CO oxidation. By controlling the dimensions of the nanowires the catalytic activity for CO oxidation could be tuned.
