Electron microscopic studies of growth of nanoscale catalysts and soot particles in a candle flame
Scanning electron microscopy and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy have been used to investigate non-classic crystal growth of catalytic nanoparticles, such as zeolites, perovskites, metal and alloy particles. Growth mechanisms of some crystals with novel morphologies, for example, BiOBr flower-like particles and ZnO twin-crystals, have also been studied. A development of sampling method for soot particles inside a candle flame allows us to reveal all four well-known carbon forms, amorphous, graphitic, fullerenic and nanodiamond particles. This article demonstrates that electron microscopy is a powerful tool to study the microstructures of small particles, giving us more freedom to develop new materials.

Abstract

Scanning electron microscopy and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy have been used to investigate non-classic crystal growth of catalytic nanoparticles, such as zeolites, perovskites, metal and alloy particles. Growth mechanisms of some crystals with novel morphologies, for example, BiOBr flower-like particles and ZnO twin-crystals, have also been studied. A development of sampling method for soot particles inside a candle flame allows us to reveal all four well-known carbon forms, amorphous, graphitic, fullerenic and nanodiamond particles. This article demonstrates that electron microscopy is a powerful tool to study the microstructures of small particles, giving us more freedom to develop new materials.
