Window into nanospace could boost batteries

Abstract:
Investigating how nickel hydroxide crystals grow in nanospace could lead to improved performance of rechargeable batteries, say scientists in Japan ("Crystal formation and growth during the hydrothermal synthesis of β-Ni(OH)2 in one-dimensional nano space").

Hironori Orikasa and colleagues at Tohoku University, Sendai, have grown nickel hydroxide nanorods inside carbon nanotubes. For the first time, the researchers were able to actually watch the rods forming using transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
