In this research, glucomannan–a biopolymer–is utilized as a template in the synthesis of Fe2O3 nanosheets with high porosity. The influence of Fe(NO3)3 in the synthetic solution on the morphology and structure of Fe2O3 phase is studied. The material is characterized with such techniques as scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and nitrogen adsorption/desorption isotherms. This route would allow researchers to fabricate metal-oxide nanosheets with high porosity.
