Abstract

We synthesized cubic nanoassemblies of octahedral CeO2 nanocrystals by simply heating an aqueous solution of cerium nitrate (Ce(NO 3)3) in the presence of hexanedioic acid (HOOC(CH 2)4COOH) in a lab-scale plug-flow reactor. It was concluded that the octahedral shape of the primary CeO2 nanocrystals plausibly leads to octa-coordination of the primary nanocrystals, thus enabling controlled assembly to form a cubic structure.
