Abstract
In this work, Y(OH)3:Eu3+ nanotubes with 2-3 µm in length and 50-300 nm in diameter have been successfully synthesized on a large scale by hydrothermal treatment of the corresponding oxides in pure water. In addition, Y2O3:Eu3+ nanotubes could be obtained by calcination of Y(OH)3:Eu3+ nanotubes in air at 450 °C. X-ray powder diffraction(XRD), Field-emission scanning electron microscopic(FE-SEM), transmission electron microscopy(TEM), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy(HRTEM), selected area electron diffraction(SAED), energy-dispersive X-ray spectra(EDS) and the photoluminescence spectra(PL) have been employed to characterize these nanotube materials. The growth mechanism as-prepared nanotubes could be explained well by the highly anisotropic crystal structure of rare earth hydroxides. Advantages of this method were simple, highly reproducible, inexpensive, and widely applicable for the large-scale industrial production.
