Ultrasonic synthesis of nickel nanostructures on glassy carbon microspheres and their application for ethanol electrooxidation.
Nickel nanostructures were synthesized onto the surface of glassy carbon microspheres (10-20 microm) with the aid of ultrasounds to produce bulk quantities of nickel micro and nanostructure surface-modified carbon microspheres (Ni-CMs). This new composite material was characterized by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and cyclic voltammetry (CV). The synthesized Ni micro and nanostructures on the glassy carbon microspheres were found to possess a large propo...Expand abstract
