Abstract

A facile approach for the synthesis of multiarmed selenium/carbon (Se/C) coaxial nanorods by using chitosan as morphology-directing agents and selenious acid as the Se source has been demonstrated in the present study. Multiarmed Se/C nanorods, consisting of I-, Y-, T-, and cross-shaped configurations, were prepared by controlling the temperature and the ratio of amount of chitosan and Se in the reaction systems.
