Abstract

This template will self-destruct: A unique particle-growth mechanism involves growth of new coordination polymers on the surface of initially formed hexagonal blocks and concomitant dissolution of the blocks to form hexagonal tubes (see scheme and scanning electron, optical, and flourescence imcroscopy images). Calcination of the tubes yields ZnO particles of the same shape.
