Abstract

Of minerals and microbes: A microbial-mineralization-inspired approach was used to facilitate the syntheses of iron oxides with a high specific surface area, such as 253 m2 g-1 for maghemite (γ-Fe 2O3) and 148 m2 g-1 for hematite (α-Fe2O3). These iron oxides can be applied to electrode material of lithium-ion batteries, adsorbents, and catalysts.
