nano-reactor, 1D (rus. нанореактор, 1D) — a type of nanoreactor whose size in two dimensions does not exceed 100 nm and is significantly greater in the third dimension.

Description

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.

Split of the porous titanium dioxide film synthesized by anodic oxidation of metallic titanium. Can be used as a nanoreactor to produce nanofibers of different metals through electrodeposition, vapor deposition, etc.
