Abstract

Determining the degree of preferred growth of low-dimensional materials is of practical importance for the improvement of the synthesis methods and applications of low-dimensional materials. In this work, three different methods are used to analyze the degree of preferred growth of the Ni(OH)2 nanoplates synthesized without the use of a complex anion. The results suggest that the preferred growth degree of the Ni(OH)2 nanoplates calculated by the March parameter and the expression given by Zolotoyabko, which are based on the analysis and texture refinement of the X-ray diffraction pattern, are in good accordance with the results measured by SEM and TEM imaging. The method using the shape function of crystallites is not suitable for the determination of the preferred growth degree of the Ni(OH)2 nanoplates. The method using the March parameter and the expression given by Zolotoyabko can be extended to the analysis of block materials.
