Abstract

Aluminophosphates molecular sieves AlPO4-5 with novel morphologies of brooms and nano-fibers (∼3.8 μm and 70-200 nm in width, respectively) were hydrothermally synthesized by varying the precursor compositions, and used as templates to prepare hexagonal carbon micro and submicro tubes. © 2009 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
