Mr Cebo Ndlangamandla (Student)


Fe2O3 nanostructures were synthesized for various pH values on Corning glass substrates by aqueous chemical growth (ACG) using a solution of ferric chloride (FeCl3). It was found that increasing the pH from 1.16 to 5.0 of the solution significantly leads to a modification of the Fe2O3 morphology or orientation from randomly parallel needle shaped rod-like to randomly perpendicular rectangular structure on to a substrate.
