Abstract

A new form of nanotubular crystal structure is directly grown by a vapor-phase hydrothermal method via an epitaxial orientated crystal growth mechanism. The as-prepared nanotubes possess a unique multi-tunnel core-shell layered nanotubular structure with droplet shaped polygonal periphery and segmental crystal configuration. They are dimension-tunable and demonstrate superior ion exchange properties in terms of exchange rate and ion accommodating capacity.
