The morphology of as-synthesized material was characterized by SEM and shown in Fig. 3. The as-synthesized powder shows A 784168 coral-like structure at low and high magnification (Fig. 3(a) and (b)). The coral-like structure with a abiogenesis size of tens of micrometers consists of interconnected spherical particles forming a meso- and macroporous structure with typical bimodal porous morphology, in which the walls of the macropores contain smaller mesopores. The Co3O4 nanoparticles were irregular particle with uniform particle size distribution.
