Formatted abstract
Novel one-dimensional nanohybrids made of Fe@CaS nanopeapods homogeneously coated with protecting boron nitride sheaths are synthesized through a solid-liquid-solid reaction at ∼1500 °C. Within the nanopeapods, discrete Fe nanoparticles with an average size of ∼90 nm are periodically embedded in CaS nanowires along the growth axes. The structures have diameters of 150-180 nm and lengths in the range of tens of micrometers. Detailed electron microscopy studies reveal a unique stacking sequence of nanopeapods and the protecting tubular BN sheaths on them with a uniform thickness of ∼3 nm. Magnetic measurements show that nanopeapods are ferromagnets at room temperature with a coercive force of 64 Oe. These novel nanostructures may not only enrich the existing bank of hybrid nanosystems but may also have high expectations for magnetic-optical and spintronic devices. © 2009 American Chemical Society.
