- We demonstrate templated synthesis of arrayed metal oxide-based nanoreactors as candidate platforms for liquid-phase catalysis. A case study of zinc oxide nanotubes revealed high-level catalytic reactivity and nanoscale-tunable kinetics, either for Knoevenagel condensation or radical-mediated oxidation, owing to the ordered nanostructures and optimized surface.
