term: nano-reactor, 1D


a type of nanoreactor whose size in two dimensions does not exceed 100 nm and is significantly greater in the third dimension.


One-dimensional nanoreactors that allow the diffusion of reagents in only one direction are widely used to produce extended nanoobjects: nanorods and nanofibres.

Solid-phase one-dimensional reactors may be represented by carbon nanotubes, porous silicon, MFI zeolites, mesoporous molecular sieves and porous structures based on aluminium oxide and titanium oxide produced by anodizing.

mechanochemical treatment
mechanical treatment which leads to grinding and a plastic deformation of solid mixtures or the substances, acceleration of a mass transfer, components mixing at the atomic level and activation of chemical interaction between solid reagents. ...
