Abstract

Cerium oxide was hydrothermally synthesized from an aqueous solution of Ce(NO3)3in the presence of either Lglutamic acid, L-aspartic acid, or L-arginine using a continuous flow reactor at 275 °C. The products synthesized with L-glutamic acid were cubic nanoassemblies comprising primary CeO2nanoparticles bound by coordination bonds. This result suggests that inorganic nanoparticles can be used as a component to build functional nanodevices using the idea of coordination programming.
