Nickel oxide nanoplates were continuously synthesized by hydrothermal reaction using a flow-type reactor. The products had a thickness of ∼ 10nm and a lateral size of 100-500nm. The nanoplates were purified and drop-cast on a bottom-gate substrate and used as the channel material in a field-effect transistor after annealing at 300 °C. The Id-Vd profile showed that the NiO nanoplates worked as the p-type semiconductor. This result suggests that various electronic devices can be prepared using metal oxide nanomaterials, which exhibit various properties including magnetism, ferroelectronics and catalysis as well as stability and safety in air and water.
