Title: Self-assembly synthesis of cactuslike Cu{sub 2}O 3D nanoarchitectures via a low-temperature solution approach

Abstract

Cu{sub 2}O nanocactuses were synthesized via a simple, low-temperature, and no time-consuming wet chemical route. The synthesized products were systematically studied by X-ray powder diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. The results showed that the formation of Cu{sub 2}O nanocactuses was strongly depended on the addition of CTAB and NaOH. The structural evolution of the cactuslike Cu{sub 2}O was found to follow dissolution and recrystallization processes. It is noteworthy that the stepwise synthetic procedure was crucial to the growth of the final nanoarchitectures. UV-vis spectrum was also used to estimate the absorption and photodegradation ability of the nanocactuses.
