Formatted abstract
Multilayer nanowire webs of aluminum borate (Al18B4O33) have been synthesized by a solid-state reaction of boron, boron oxide, and aluminum oxide at high temperature without using any template or substrate. Alumina powder on a micron scale provides an in-situ reaction container resulting in self-oriented growth of the aluminum borate nanowires. The orientation could be maintained by a quenching treatment. The addition of boron should be responsible for the generation of the web morphology. Without any further purification, a large amount of nanowire webs with high purity was obtained. Further experiments were carried out to investigate the morphological dependence on the reactant compositions. The possible growth mechanism for the nanowebs was detailed based on extensive analysis and examination.
