Researchers report the controlled synthesis of Sc2O3 nanomaterials via the precursor annealing of ScOOH, which can be easily synthesized in a hydrothermal method using sodium citrate as surfactant. More importantly, the morphology, size, crystal structure, and even the crystal phase transition of ScOOH can be easily achieved by simply varying the amount of surfactant molecules, which otherwise is not possible if surfactant molecules are not used.
