Novel tungsten oxide nanotubes expected to be useful as indoor photocatalysts

Researchers in Japan have successfully synthesized tungsten oxide nanotubes by a simple hydrothermal method. These nanotubes are composed of aggregates of crystallites and have a nanoporous structure with fine, nanometer-scale pores on their walls. This structure provides the nanotubes with a large specific surface area, enabling high photocatalytic activity.
