Controlled Growth of Carbon Spheres Through the Mg-Reduction Route

By Liang Shi, Hailin Lin, Keyan Bao, Jie Cao and Yitai Qian


Hollow spheres, hollow capsules and solid spheres of carbon were selectively synthesized by Mg-reduction of hexachlorobutadiene at appropriate reaction conditions. X-ray powder diffraction and Raman spectra reveal that the as-prepared materials have a well-ordered structure. A possible formation mechanism has been proposed
