Abstract

Tungsten-trioxide nanowire bundles were prepared using a simple hydrothermal method. Sodium-tungstate was used as precursor and sodium-sulfate as structure directing agent. All the reflections of the X-ray diffractogram of the synthesized wires belong to the hexagonal phase of the tungsten trioxide. The nanowires were successfully decorated with metal nanoparticles by wet impregnation. The TEM investigation showed that using different metal precursors resulted in different particle sizes and coverage on the surface.
